    Integrated Intraoperative Optical Coherence Tomography during Scleral Pass in Strabismus Surgery

    We describe a novel application of integrated intraoperative OCT (iiOCT) to strabismus surgery during the scleral pass and demonstrate it to be a useful tool. A number of complications can arise from inappropriate scleral pass depth during strabismus surgery, leading to an increased risk of unwanted complications including endophthalmitis, retinal detachment, and a lost or slipped muscle. Our study demonstrated that the use of iiOCT provides easy to interpret, real-time feedback to the strabismus surgeon and may translate to safer, more consistent scleral suturing during strabismus surgery and strabismus surgical training.
