    The Additive Value of Foveal OCT-based Biometry to Fundus Biomicroscopy for Detecting Macular Pathology Prior to Cataract Surgery

    Purpose : To assess the additive value of foveal swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) based biometry to the preoperative fundus examinations for diagnosing macular abnormalities in patients scheduled for cataract surgery. Design : Diagnostic testing evaluation. Methods : Consecutive patients 50 years of age and older planned for cataract surgery from one institution were retrospectively enrolled. All patients underwent foveal SS-OCT, and macular spectral-domain (SD)-OCT scans before pupil dilation as well as dilated fundus biomicroscopy examination. The effectiveness of fundus biomicroscopy examinations, foveal SS-OCT scans, and the combination of both in identifying macular diseases was analyzed with macular SD-OCT scans as reference ...
