    Think OCT for Measuring Strabismus

    In an effort to better automate strabismus evaluations, which are prone to error when done manually, researchers in the United Kingdom used binocular optical coherence tomography (OCT) to measure the size of strabismus, with positive results. The study included 15 patients with strabismus and 15 controls, and evaluated the findings of both automated anterior segment imaging and alternating prism cover test (APCT). The researchers found OCT imaging “correctly revealed the type and direction of the deviation in all 15 participants with strabismus, including horizontal and vertical deviations,” and the imaging was strongly correlated with the APCT measurement. APCT results also ...
