    Conjunctival Microangiopathy in Diabetes Mellitus Assessed with Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

    Purpose : To detect and quantify conjunctival microangiopathy with optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Methods : Imaging was performed in the temporal and nasal quadrant of the conjunctiva using a Heidelberg Spectralis spectral domain-OCT in OCTA mode adding a 25D lens to the standard 30° fundus lens. Images were acquired within a 10° × 5° cube at the limbus. Binary images were analyzed using ImageJ (Fiji software version 2.0) and an average relative conjunctival vessel density was assessed. Results : Thirty-two patients with diabetes mellitus type 1 and 2 and 42 healthy individuals were included. Vessel density in healthy individuals was 16.7 ...
