Angio-OCT is a non-invasive technique of assessing retinal vessels and microcirculation without necessary administration of a contrast medium. It enables detection of lesions in small vessels at the earliest stages. The examination is used e.g. for diagnosis and monitoring of such diseases as: age-related retinal degeneration, central retinal vein occlusion, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma.

The examination provides the doctors with imaging of the vascular pattern and retinal layers during a single examination. It is completely safe and non-invasive for the patient.


Angio-OCT is a method of retinal and choroidal vessel imaging with the use of an optic tomograph.

Angio-OCT is a non-invasive examination. The light beam used by the system to make measurements is completely safe for the eye. The examination does not require administration of a contrast medium.

Angio-OCT is performed in the case of: macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic retinopathy, occlusion of retinal vessels, glaucoma.

If you receive pupil-dilating drops during the examination, you must NOT drive a car directly after that. You should wait for about 2-3 hours.
