The preclinical OCT solutions provide insight into eye disease research, while the clinical OCT systems serve as an aid in diagnosing pathological conditions. Each system is non-invasive, contact-free, and helps detect and monitor morphological changes of ocular tissue.
OCT from Leica Microsystems
With the acquisition of Bioptigen in 2015, Leica Microsystems offers OCT imaging systems for clinical ophthalmology and preclinical research.
Visualization for Ophthalmic Surgeons
Perioperative OCT provides anatomic feedback to the surgeon, which aids in the visualization of physiological and pathological conditions during ophthalmic surgery, and helps guide surgical decision making in anterior as well as posterior cases.
Our product solution: EnFocus
Diagnostic Support for Ophthalmologists
Bioptigen’s OCT systems have revolutionized the clinical practice of ophthalmology by providing high-resolution images, ultra-fast scanning, and deep insight into anatomic information. It has become the gold standard imaging modality for many conditions for aiding in the diagnosis and monitoring of therapeutic outcomes, and has quickly become one of the most frequently ordered diagnostic tests in all of medicine. Envisu, is a hand-held OCT solution with an intended use to aid in the diagnosis of physiological and pathologic conditions of the eye.

About Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an imaging technology with applications in biology, medicine, and materials investigations. In a clinical environment, OCT has revolutionized the clinical practice of ophthalmology by providing 3D anatomic information. In preclinical research, OCT facilitates early stage research into pathology and drug discovery. This non-invasive technique is used to detect and monitor morphological changes of ocular tissue, in particular retinal layer thickness, which may aid in the diagnosis of certain pathological conditions such as glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration (AMD) or diabetic retinopathy. In this Sciecne Lab topic you can find basic information about OCT, articles with application examples, case studies, and links to selected publications.
