    Accuracy of optical coherence tomography measurements of rectus muscle insertions in adult patients undergoing strabismus surgery

    Purpose To assess the accuracy of anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) in measuring the distance of extraocular muscle (EOM) insertion to the limbus to improve preoperative assessment of adult patients undergoing strabismus surgery. Design Reliability analysis. Setting An institutional practice. Patient Population 74 adult patients scheduled for strabismus surgery on rectus muscles. Observation Procedure The distance between the EOM insertion and the limbus was measured preoperatively with AS-OCT. The value was compared to intraoperative measurement obtained with calipers. Additional measurements included the limbus-anterior chamber angle distance with AS-OCT and the axial length with IOLMaster. Main Outcome Measure Agreement between ...
