    1. Evaluation of the signs of deficient posterior capsule in posterior polar cataracts using anterior segment optical coherence tomography

      Evaluation of the signs of deficient posterior capsule in posterior polar cataracts using anterior segment optical coherence tomography

      Purpose: To systematically observe and analyze the signs of deficient posterior capsule in posterior polar cataracts. Design: Ambispective observational study. Participants: Cases with posterior polar cataracts. Methods: Eyes with diagnosed posterior polar cataracts were imaged on anterior segment optical coherence tomography. A detailed assessment was performed to note the morphology of the posterior opacity, posterior capsule, and the common patterns to indicate their abnormality. In addition, generalized observation of the morphology was also performed with respect to intraoperative surgical experiences. Results: A total of 101 eyes were included. The average patient age was 52.85 ± 10.72 years. The posterior ...

    2. Swept-source optical coherence tomography features of regressed macular retinoblastoma

      Swept-source optical coherence tomography features of regressed macular retinoblastoma

      Purpose: To describe the swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) features of regressed macular retinoblastoma (RB). Methods: A cross-sectional observational study was carried out in 13 patients with regressed macular RB with good fixation in at least one eye. Fundus photography and SS-OCT were documented. High-resolution scans with good signal strength were selected. The types of clinical regression and SS-OCT characteristics of the regressed lesions (presence of vitreous detachment, intratumor schisis/cavitation, calcification, foveal dip, and OCT pattern) were noted. Results: Of the 13 eyes, 7 (53%) were group B, 4 (30%) were group C, and 2 (17%) were group D ...

    3. Assessment of macular vascular plexus density using optical coherence tomography angiography in cases of strabismic amblyopia

      Assessment of macular vascular plexus density using optical coherence tomography angiography in cases of strabismic amblyopia

      Purpose: To evaluate the superficial retinal vascular plexus density using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) in cases of strabismic amblyopia. Methods: Ten eyes of 10 patients with purely strabismic amblyopia underwent detailed ocular evaluation followed by the assessment of the superficial retinal plexus vascular density using OCTA (Topcon DRI OCT Triton, Swept Source OCT, Topcon, Japan). Ten contralateral normal eyes of the same patients were considered as control. All these 20 eyes underwent a 4.5 × 4.5 mm cube scan OCTA centered at the fovea. Using the Topcon propriety software all 20 eyes were assessed for the capillary plexus ...

    4. Intraoperative optical coherence tomography-guided scleral suture passage while performing surgery on extraocular muscles

      Intraoperative optical coherence tomography-guided scleral suture passage while performing surgery on extraocular muscles

      Sir, Microscope-integrated intraoperative optical coherence tomography (iOCT, 2 mm depth penetration) helps in achieving the optimal results by providing the real-time images of tissue manipulation during the surgery. The iOCT is of great value while performing lamellar corneal surgeries, cataract surgeries, and intraocular lens implantation surgery. [1] , [2] It has also been noted to provide an advantage during placement of the glaucoma drainage devices in cadaveric eyes and needling of the blebs. [3] , [4] Pasricha et al . described the four-dimensional visualizations of the muscle and the scleral wound while passing the scleral sutures. [5] A 45-year-old male patient with alternate ...

    5. Retinal nerve fiber layer and ganglion cell layer changes on optical coherence tomography in early multiple sclerosis and optic neuritis cases

      Retinal nerve fiber layer and ganglion cell layer changes on optical coherence tomography in early multiple sclerosis and optic neuritis cases

      Purpose: To study the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and ganglion cell layer (GCL) changes on optical coherence tomography in early multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. Methods: A prospective cohort study was conducted at a tertiary care center. Patients of early MS (expanded disability status scale <3) with or without optic neuritis (ON) and idiopathic ON were included. Twenty age-matched individuals were taken as controls. Changes in RNFL and GCL thickness were evaluated along with the correlation with visual function parameters such as visual acuity, contrast sensitivity, and visual evoked response at first visit and again at six months. Results: Forty-four ...

    6. Anterior segment optical coherence tomography for identifying muscle status in strabismus surgery

      Anterior segment optical coherence tomography for identifying muscle status in strabismus surgery

      Dear Sir, Anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) finds very few indications in the domain of strabismus surgery. Current applications remain restricted to determining limbus-muscle insertion distance and anterior segment changes after strabismus surgery. We discuss two cases of operated strabismus surgery where AS-OCT imaging helped in identifying the operated eye and/or extra ocular muscles (EOM) and thus proved instrumental in planning and management. Case 1 A 45 years old orthotropic male presented with post traumatic left eye rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. He had history of strabismus surgery in the left eye in childhood for exotropia. He was planned for ...
