1. OCT Reveals Regional Differences in Macular Thickness with Age

    Purpose. To assist identification of macular thickness abnormalities by optical coherence tomography (OCT), we use techniques that improve spatial localization across the retina to establish any age-related retinal thickness changes in healthy eyes. Methods. Retinal thickness was measured in 30 eyes of 30 healthy subjects aged 13 to 69 years. Using Stratus OCT 3, 12 radial scans centered at the foveola were acquired and points between scans were interpolated to create a topographic map of the central 20[degrees]. The thickness map was divided into 37 hexagonal regions. A mean retinal thickness for each hexagon was computed. Retinal thickness vs ...
