Topcon Maestro 2 

During your comprehensive eye exam, your eye doctor may use the Topcon Maestro 2 while evaluating the health of your eyes. The Topcon Maestro 2 is a robotic OCT and color fundus camera.

Your eye doctor will use the Topcon Maestro 2 to take a photo of your fundus, the inside, and the back surface of the eye. The fundus is comprised of your retina, macula, optic disc, fovea, and blood vessels. The digital image will be stored in your medical record, and your eye doctor will review the images with you to educate you on your eye health. Over time, as more fundus photos are taken, your eye doctor will be able to track changes to your eye health.  

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)  

Optical Coherence Tomography, or OCT, is a non-invasive scan of the retina which provides your doctor with detailed, 3D, color-coded, and cross-sectional images of the macula and the retina. These images enable your doctor to detect signs of eye disease in the early stages, which may not have any symptoms.    

The OCT scan uses a laser which enables your doctor to obtain high-resolution images of your retina, macula, and optic nerve. Nothing touches your eye, and the test is painless. The test takes about a minute to complete.     

The OCT scan can be used to diagnose, manage, or treat many different eye diseases and conditions, including diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, macular edema, glaucoma, drusen, retinal detachment, occlusions or bleeding, a macular hole, and neovascularization.   

If you are at risk of developing an eye disease or have other factors in your health history, your eye doctor will utilize the Topcon Maestro 2 during your comprehensive eye exam. If you have already been diagnosed with an eye disease, an OCT scan will provide your doctor with valuable information to monitor your treatment.
