    Volumetric macro- and micro-scale assessment of crystalline lens opacities in cataract patients using long-depth-range swept source optical coherence tomography

    We demonstrate an optimized optical platform for the three-dimensional (3-D) visualization of crystalline lens opacities in vivo in the eyes of patients with different types and grades of cataracts. We developed a prototype long-depth-range swept source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) instrument operating at the speed of 50 kA-scans/second and at the central wavelength of 1 μm to perform high-resolution imaging of the whole anterior segment of the eye. Volumetric data sets of cataractous eyes were acquired and processed to obtain contrast-enhanced high-resolution images of lenticular structures and opacifications. The results showed lens micro- and macro-scale features related to possible ...
