Understand how OCT captures high resolution images of ocular tissue,
Understand how optic nerve head parameters, retinal nerve fibre layer and ganglion cell layers are quantified,
Identify the role of OCT scanning in glaucoma diagnosis, with reference to the optic disc parameters, retinal nerve fibre and ganglion cell analysis, and
Be able to use OCT to identify features supportive of glaucoma progression.
