    Development of a Fiber-Optic Optical Coherence Tomography Probe for Intraocular Use

    Purpose : To evaluate the performance of a newly developed 23-G optical coherence tomography (OCT) probe in animal and human eyes. Methods : The probe is a side-imaging OCT device with a scanning beam set 43° to the optical axis and a working distance of 1.5 to 2.0 mm. The performance of the OCT probe was tested during vitrectomy in porcine cadaver eyes and rabbit eyes in situ. Optical coherence tomography images of a normal retina, retinal break, optic disc, pars plicata of the ciliary body, and intraoperative surgical manipulations were recorded. The probe was also tested in a pilot ...
