Optometry has recently started using powerful computer driven diagnostic tools. The Talia Retinal Thickness Analyzer (RTA) is such a machine. This online instruction manual was created to give students easy access to information regarding the use of the RTA and interpretation of RTA reports. It provides information about the different uses of the RTA, in-depth instructions on how to perform a scan, examples of scan reports with a focus on their clinical use, and includes an abbreviated instruction guide for quick reference. The manual will offer a convenient way for student and faculty RTA users to learn about this technology. The online format will allow access to the instruction manual from school, clinic, home, or preceptorship sites.
