• Can you do an OCT scan remotely?


    Question:

    Can I have an OCT scan remotely via telemedicine appointment?


    Answer:

    At this time, Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) can only be performed in a clinical office setting and cannot be done remotely via telehealth. Research is ongoing to create a home-based OCT scan, however it is not ready at this time. I am hopeful that the increased use of telehealth during the pandemic will spur technological advances that will make home OCT testing possible.
