    Artifact in swept source optical coherence tomography due to silicone oil

    Silicone oil (polydimethylsiloxane) is one of the most commonly used intraocular tamponade agents in ophthalmic practice. [1] , [2] Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has been used to study the vitreoretinal interface or retinal changes in these oil-filled eyes. One of the common artifacts seen in these eyes is the presence of a crescentic hyperreflective focus above the fovea which represents the interface between posterior margin of silicone oil and retinal surface. [3] However, in our case, due to approximation in the peripheral retina, silicone oil led to an artifactual displacement of the retina on the scan, although the interface focus is ...
