    Aphakic contact lens use for improved handheld optical coherence tomography imaging in pediatric aphakic patients

    Handheld optical coherence tomography (OCT) makes it possible to acquire intraoperative and clinical imaging in infants and children for whom standard OCT is not possible. In patients with a retinal pathology who are left aphakic after surgery, however, image clarity is affected by insufficient refractive correction with handheld OCT. We describe a technique for supplementing the refractive power of the handheld OCT device with an aphakic contact lens to improve image clarity.
