    AAO 2021
    Diagnostic & Imaging, Glaucoma

    In this presentation from AAO 2021, Drs. Budenz and Lind review how optical coherence tomography (OCT) has become an important tool for diagnosing glaucoma and detecting glaucoma progression. Topics include the following:

    • interpretation of OCT for glaucoma diagnosis and progression
    • examples of glaucoma detection and progression
    • false positives (“red disease”)
    • false negatives (“green disease”)
    • other diagnostic dilemmas
