Biometric measurement of the mouse eye using optical coherence tomography with focal plane advancement.
Purpose: To demonstrate that high-resolution biometry is possible in mouse eyes in vivo, using real-time OCT with focal plane advancement by a stepper motor. Methods: OCT images of eyes were taken from nine 29-day-old C57BL/6 mice(18 eyes) on two consecutive days. A custom-built real-time OCT instrument with a stepper motor was used to advance the focal plane from the corneal apex to the retina along the ocular axis. The ocular dimensions were determined by advancement of the stepper motor as it displayed on the OCT scan images. Results: OCT images of the entire eye, including the cornea, anterior ...Read Full Article
