This focused series on “The Use of OCT as a Biomarker in Neuro-ophthalmology” is edited by Fiona Costello, Departments of Clinical Neuroscience and Surgery, Cumming School of Medicine, University of Calgary, Canada; and Steffen Hamann, Department of Ophthalmology, Rigshospitalet, University of Copenhagen, Denmark.

Over the past two decades, optical coherence tomography (OCT) has transitioned from being an ocular imaging technology used predominantly in the management of patients with glaucoma and retinal diseases, to an invaluable tool in neuro-ophthalmic practice. As a surrogate marker of neuroaxonal integrity, OCT and recent advancements in OCT-angiography (OCT-A), are now used to diagnose many optic neuropathies, and prognosticate visual recovery over time.
