    Feasibility of microscope-integrated swept-source optical coherence tomography in canaloplasty

    Background: Several researchers have used commercial microscope-integrated optical coherence tomography (OCT) systems in glaucoma surgery, including ab interno trabeculectomy and canaloplasty. However, the 840 nm wavelength light source of the OCT systems is not ideal for imaging the anterior chamber angle structures because of its limited penetration. We evaluated the potential value of a microscope-integrated swept-source OCT system with a 1,310 nm center-wavelength light in canaloplasty for glaucoma. Methods: Sixteen porcine eyes were used to simulate canaloplasty. The critical surgical steps were monitored using a prototype microscope-integrated OCT system with a 1,310 nm light source and a high ...
