    Comparison of spectral-domain and high-penetration OCT for observing morphologic changes in age-related macular degeneration and polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy

    Background We compared the visibility of retinal and choroidal pathologies using high-penetration optical coherence tomography (HP-OCT) with a long-wavelength light source (1,050 nm) and conventional spectral-domain OCT (SD-OCT) in age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Methods One hundred and forty-six eyes were included: 63 eyes with AMD, 79 eyes with polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV), and four eyes with retinal angiomatous proliferation. The SD-OCT and HP-OCT images were compared using the grading criteria to grade the visibility of the retinal changes, the line corresponding to the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), and the chorioscleral interface (CSI). In 132 eyes with a pigment epithelial ...
