  Purpose

The Cirrus OCT provides due to the spectral domain technology a 2-fold resolution than Stratus OCT generated in a comparable amount of time. Due to this higher resolution the retinal surface and the retinal pigment epithelium can be identified more clearly, a significantly reduced number of algorithm failures is expected


Condition
Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Choroidal Neovascularization

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only
