1. Detailed Visualization of the Anterior Segment Using Fourier-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

    Objective  To study details of the anterior chamber drainage angle using Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography in healthy subjects and patients with angle abnormalities. Methods  A high-speed anterior segment optical coherence tomography prototype was developed using a 1310-nm-wavelength swept light source. Six healthy subjects and 6 patients with glaucoma were imaged in an observational cross-sectional study. Results  Schlemm’s canal and the trabecular meshwork were visualized in all of the patients. Fifteen-millimeter scans enabled entire anterior segment visualization providing configuration details of the iris with respect to the angle. Four-millimeter scans permitted detailed views of the angle configuration and its structures ...
