OCT Interview with Dr. Cohn

Q: Please describe what the OCT is used for and give a basic sense of how it works.

Dr. Cohn: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging test that uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina, the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye.

Q: What components, or how much of the surface of the cornea, does the OCT map? Why is this critical for eye health?

Dr. Cohn: With OCT, each of the retina’s distinctive layers can be seen, allowing your eye doctor to map and measure their thickness. These measurements help with early detection, diagnosis and treatment guidance for retinal diseases and conditions.
Q: What types of eye diseases and disorders can be discovered?
Dr. Cohn: Glaucoma, Age related macular degeneration, Macular pucker, Macular edema, Central serous retinopathy, Diabetic retinopathy.

Q: What is it about this particular technology that you find most exciting? What is the component that made you feel you need to invest in this for your practice?

Dr. Cohn: The OCT allows us to find issues that otherwise may have been missed. Patients like being able to see that everything is normal. If there is a problem, they can actually see it and be involved in their care.

Q: Do your patients appreciate the upgrade in technology?
Dr. Cohn:Yes, our patients expect us to keep up with latest technology.
Q: To what patients do you recommend using the OCT?
Dr. Cohn: All patients 35 and over.
