Retina Today Journal Club moderators Jonathan Prenner, MD, and Richard Kaiser, MD, invited Justis Ehlers, MD, Assistant Professor at the Cleveland Clinic to discuss his work with intraoperative optical coherence tomography (OCT) guidance and how it relates to a retina surgeon.
OCT has been used in clinical practice for over 10 years. This addition to practice has revolutionized the way the retinal anatomy is viewed and it's also provided a new perspective on how treatment affects anatomic changes in the retina. The next step is to bring OCT into the surgical suite in a way that provides high-resolution imaging, improved surgeon control, and reproducibility. Dr. Ehlers has amassed a good amount of experience in this field and feels that intraoperative OCT has given him much more information regarding retinal anatomy.
