    OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY 2: DIAGNOSTIC TOOL TO STUDY PERIPHERAL VITREORETINAL PATHOLOGIES

    Purpose: To investigate the utility of new wide-field optical coherence tomography (OCT) device in the evaluation of mid and far retinal periphery and to show its feasibility and advantages in clinical practice. Methods: Consecutive patients underwent a complete ophthalmologic examination including standard OCT and new prototype OCT2 derived from Heidelberg Spectralis. Results: Thirty-one eyes of 31 patients were studied with a total of 44 lesions, including 18 retinal detachments, 15 retinal holes and tears, 9 retinoschisis, and 2 retinal tufts. Fourteen (32%) lesions were found in mid and 30 (68%) in far periphery with 9 (20%) lesions in the superior ...
