Gary, A good last point. But on some patients, trying for 4-5 minutes instead
of 1-2 minutes to get a scan pays off. There were many instances of poor media
where I would finally get a scan showing the macula with a smooth foveal
Granted, a signal strength of 1/10 or 0/10, but good enough to show the macula
as”flat and attached”, indicating further surgery might be of benefit.

Thanks Gary. Got this one.
Yeah, Read your Manual!
And follow that Indian wisdom- when your horse falls down, quit beating it….
You have a great list, I would include....
-understand your OCT device, how to use it and what it can do for you.
-recognizing artifacts- causes, location, how to correct
-know the point at which you're not going to achieve a better image.
