The invention and development of Optical Coherence Tomography as an imaging technique has completely revolutionised ophthalmology practice. The provision of a quick diagnosis from a non-invasive technique has allowed the timely introduction of sight-saving treatment with minimum impact to patient quality of life.

The technique has changed greatly since its’ invention, with it becoming vastly more widely available and a common staple of high street optometry in recent times.

This lecture will discuss the past, present and future of OCT including later developments such as OCT angiography, swept source technology, anterior eye imaging and the use of artificial intelligence to aid diagnosis and management decisions.
