Optical Coherence Tomography or Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT) is an emerging technology delivering three dimensional (3D) eye scan useful in the advanced diagnostic of various optical diseases such as age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), cataracts, diabetes, glaucoma and retinal detachments, etc. Similarly, these observations of the retina are used to perform coronary artery.
Using the light instead of sound waves, the OCT technology provides a high-resolution 3D image of all the major structures in the eye. Thus, OCT devices assist the optometrist in the early detection of eye abnormalities along with the cardiovascular issues such as diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol. Providing non-invasive imaging tests that are simple to understand, OCT devices help availing the fastest diagnosis save a huge amount of time, eliminating the need for further consecutive tests.

Additionally, the image captured by OCT devices can be studied and review on the screen itself, which enables the eye care professional to compare successive images to identify even small changes that can occur over time. Thus, the précised detailing the OCT scan allows pinpointing abnormalities in micrometers and particular areas of concern by digitally uncovering the layers of the eye. These are some of the advantages that OCT devices provide, which drive the demand and uptake of OCT, widening its market size extensively.
Considering the expansion, this market is witnessing currently; Market Research Future (MRFR) has recently published a study report giving out the complete market forecast up to 2023.
