First introduced in the early 1990s, OCT is a noninvasive imaging technique that obtains high-resolution, cross-sectional images of the retina and other ophthalmic tissues.In recent years, this technology has transitioned from being only available in the clinic to being able to be utilized in the operating room. Intraoperative OCT has allowed ophthalmologists to access real-time imaging of vitreoretinal surgery for the first time, adding a new dimension to surgery and education, according to a 2016 study published in Eye (London) by Justis P. Ehlers, MD.
