Benefits of OCT in diabetic retinopathy

26 Feb 2023
Optical Academy

Diabetic retinal screening (DRS) has been taking place in the UK since the 1960s using traditional ophthalmoscopy techniques, progressing to fundus photography, which is still the main protocol used in DRS today. As diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases in the UK, and its prevalence is growing, the need for this beneficial service is also growing as is the need for the understanding of diabetic retinopathy within clinical practice. OCT has enabled us to visualise the posterior and anterior segments for many different eye conditions and has a massive benefit for clinicians with the visualisation of diabetic retinopathy using this non invasive technology. The aim of the presentation is to show and talk through examples of different diabetic pathology using OCT and OCTA to enable clinicians to understand the signs which are visible on OCT and the benefits of using this technology in practice to aid with monitoring, decisions and referrals.

 

Learning outcome:

Practitioners will be aware of the characteristics of diabetes-related abnormalities that can be identified using OCT
