Imaging and Measurement of the Retina and Optic Nerve: Review

ABSTRACT Optical coherence tomography captures a major role in clinical assessment in eye care. Innovative hardware and software improvements in the technology would further enhance its usefulness. In this review, we present several promising initiatives currently in development or early phase of assessment that we expect to have a future impact on optical coherence tomography.
