The use of OCT instruments to image the posterior segment has become almost ubiquitous, and now it is convenient for practitioners to image not only the retina, but also the choroid, with a high level of reproducibility and detail.
Today, retina specialists have access to a broad range of imaging devices with different image-acquiring technologies.
Ciclosporin A Cationic Emulsion (CsA CE; Ikervis, Santen) significantly improved signs and symptoms of dry eye disease in a randomised controlled trial.
