Read our disclaimer for details.
During regularly scheduled appointments, Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is performed on consented subjects. The OCT is a new type of camera that takes very detailed pictures inside of the eye and deeper into eye tissues. Optical Coherence Tomography imaging of intraocular tumors may lead to improved diagnosis and monitoring of tumors within the eye.
