    Future Prospects: Assessment of Intraoperative Optical Coherence Tomography in Ab Interno Glaucoma Surgery

    Purpose : Ab interno glaucoma surgery , such as trabecular aspiration or ab interno trabeculotomy, has been introduced as an alternative, non-filtering procedure to lower intraocular pressure in glaucoma patients. The purpose of the present study was to assess the feasibility of intraoperative spectral domain optical coherence tomography (iOCT) for improving ab interno glaucoma surgery . Materials and Methods : Intraoperative optical coherence tomography was performed to visualize the anterior chamber angle, the aspiration canula during trabecular aspiration, and the trabectome device during ab interno trabeculotomy. A commercially available 840-nm iOCT was used in a clinical setting, a 1310-nm spectral-domain OCT in an experimental ...
