    Optical coherence tomography as a rapid, accurate, non-contact method of visualizing the palisades of Vogt
    Purpose: This study explored the efficacy of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) as a high-resolution, non-contact method for imaging of the palisades of Vogt by correlating OCT and confocal microscopy images. Methods: Human limbal rims were acquired and imaged with OCT and confocal microscopy. The area of the epithelial basement membrane in each of these sets was digitally reconstructed and the models were compared. Results: OCT identified the palisades within the limbus and exhibited excellent structural correlation with immunostained tissue imaged by confocal microscopy. Conclusions: OCT successfully identified the limbal palisades of Vogt that constitute the corneal epithelial stem cell niche ...
