Availability of the most diagnostic tools such as Humphrey's automated perimeter for visual field analysis, octopus, Applanation and Prekin's tonometer for the measurement of Intraocular pressure and 2, 3 and 4 mirror chamber. OCT for optic nerve head analysis. The Department of Medical College Hospital. 3D Spectralis OCT (Heidelberg) Scanning laser spectral domain optical coherence tomography, the latest state of the art imaging technology is now available at RIO Kolkata. This is the only machine in Eastern India which can simultaneously perform OCT, fluorescein angiography, indocyanine green angiography. Scanning laser gives very high resolution three dimensional OCT image of retina for better comprehension and evaluation of retinal disorders compared to time domain OCT.
