    The architecture of corneal stromal striae on optical coherence tomography and histology in an animal model and in humans

    The purpose of this study was to use a portable optical coherence tomography (OCT) for characterization of corneal stromal striae (CSS) in an ovine animal model and human corneas with histological correlation, in order to evaluate their architectural pattern by image analysis. Forty-six eyes from female adult sheep (older than 2 years), and 12 human corneas, were included in our study. The eyes were examined in situ by a portable OCT, without enucleation. All OCT scans were performed immediately after death, and then the eyes were delivered to a qualified histology laboratory. In the ovine animal model, CSS were detected ...
