Review covers the historical and practical problems of imaging of eye structures. It describes main complications related to full and correct diagnostics of vitreoretinal pathology including such diseases as rhegmatogenous retinal detachment, proliferative diabetic retinopathy, opened and closed eye injury, etc. It was conducted a detailed analysis of current method’s features and diagnostics technologies in ophthalmology, and a contemporary analysis of their possibilities as well. We examined perspective elaborations having a big potential in accuracy increase and data integrity, and their further interpretation.
