Approaches to using optical coherence tomography (OCT) for ocular hemodynamics monitoring in patients with primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) are presented. The existing OCT systems used in ophthalmology are described. The different OCT systems are compared in accuracy and resolution characteristics, as these are important for clinical studies. The results of ocular hemodynamics monitoring of POAG patients using Spectralis OCT2 with an OCT Angiography module are given.
