Optical coherence tomography is a non-contact imaging method of the anterior and posterior segments of the eye that is based on laser scanning in spectral domain. This study presents diagnostic possibilities of the new generation Solix FullRange™ OCT&OCTA apparatus (Optovue) to examine meibomian glands, cornea, anterior chamber, as well iridocorneal angles and lens. In the posterior segment of the eye it allows for the precise evaluation of the vitreous body, choroid, retina, optic nerve and blood-flow measurements.
