Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive method used to evaluate the retina and the optic nerve. Since its inception, OCT has become a valuable adjunct to the clinical examination in neuro-ophthalmology. In this article we review some of the more common uses for OCT, including differentiating optic nerve pathology from retinal pathology, and following optic nerve swelling and/or atrophy over time. Clinical examples are provided to show the utility of OCT in both neuro-ophthalmology and general ophthalmology practice.
