    In vivo microstructural and microvascular imaging of the human corneo-scleral limbus using optical coherence tomography

    The corneo-scleral limbus contains several biological components, which are important constituents for understanding, diagnosing and managing several ocular pathologies, such as glaucoma and corneal abnormalities. An anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) system integrated with optical microangiography (OMAG) is used in this study to non-invasively visualize the three-dimensional microstructural and microvascular properties of the limbal region. Advantages include first the ability to correct optical distortion of microstructural images enabling quantification of relationships in the anterior chamber angle. Second, microvascular images enable the visualization of the microcirculation in the limbal area without the use of exogenous contrast agents. Third, by combining ...
