Summary: Glaucoma is a group of optic neuropathies characterized by the damage of retinal nerve fiber causing corresponding vision loss. Evaluation of changes in retinal nerve fiber layer is an important part in detecting and monitoring glaucoma. The development of new imaging techniques such as HRT, GDx, OCT and SOCT significantly expanded possibilities of glaucoma diagnosis. Despite similar indications to treat these studies can not be used interchangeably but only complement each other in order to increase the probability of a proper diagnosis. With high resolution, high speed and the ability to use 3D features SOCT is concerned to be the most authoritative method in glaucoma diagnostics. Assessment of the perimacular and optic disc changes makes it truly valuable tool. With the growing number of SOCT cameras the possibility of non compatible product usage became very likely. Although the principle of working is similar, it is not possible to compare other producers SOCT results. In order to increase ability of recognizing glaucoma the interpretation of images still needs to be standardized. Also creating better software and databases might be very useful. Relatively short time of SOCT usage and the slow development of the glaucomatous neuropathy do not allow for full application of the method yet.
