    1. The impact of structural optical coherence tomography changes on visual function in retinal vein occlusion

      The impact of structural optical coherence tomography changes on visual function in retinal vein occlusion

      Purpose We aimed to determine the correlation between optical coherence tomography (OCT)‐ and demographic features and baseline best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) in treatment‐naïve patients with retinal vein occlusion (RVO). Methods This was a cross‐sectional posthoc analysis of OCT images that included RVO patients from two prospective, open‐label, multicentre studies. The morphological grading was done manually, in the standardized setting of a reading centre. Main outcome measure was the estimated difference in Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study letters associated with each individual biomarker. Results Included were 381/301 treatment‐naïve patients with BRVO/CRVO. For ...

    2. Retinal vessel architecture in retinopathy of prematurity and healthy controls using swept‐source optical coherence tomography angiography

      Retinal vessel architecture in retinopathy of prematurity and healthy controls using swept‐source optical coherence tomography angiography

      Purpose To determine microvascular changes in children with a history of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) and in a control group of full‐term children. Methods In a cross‐sectional study, 30 eyes of 15 children aged 6–8 years with a history of ROP were evaluated with swept‐source optical coherence tomography angiography (SS‐OCTA). Twenty‐eight eyes of 22 age‐matched full‐term children served as a healthy control group. The foveal avascular zone (FAZ), vessel density (VD) and choroidal vascular flow area (VFA) were evaluated on OCTA and correlated with central retinal thickness (CRT), visual acuity (VA), birth ...

    3. Semi‐automated quantification of geographic atrophy with blue‐light autofluorescence and spectral‐domain optical coherence tomography: a comparison between the region finder and the advanced retinal pigment epithelium tool in the clinical setting

      Semi‐automated quantification of geographic atrophy with blue‐light autofluorescence and spectral‐domain optical coherence tomography: a comparison between the region finder and the advanced retinal pigment epithelium tool in the clinical setting

      Purpose To compare inter‐ and intraobserver reliability and intermodality agreement on quantification of geographic atrophy, using two routinely available quantification tools, based on blue‐light fundus autofluorescence (BAF) and spectral‐domain optical coherence tomography (SD‐OCT). Methods Quantifications of atrophic lesions within the central 5 mm of 30 eyes from 30 patients (mean age: 76.1 years) were independently performed by two clinicians on BAF images using the region finder (RF; Heidelberg Engineering) and on SD‐OCT using the advanced retinal pigment epithelium tool (ARPET; Carl Zeiss Meditec) at baseline and follow‐up (mean interval: 336 days). Inter‐ and intraobserver ...

    4. Correlation between morphological characteristics in spectral‐domain‐optical coherence tomography, different functional tests and a patient's subjective handicap in acute central serous chorioretinopathy

      Correlation between morphological characteristics in spectral‐domain‐optical coherence tomography, different functional tests and a patient's subjective handicap in acute central serous chorioretinopathy

      Purpose The purpose of this study was to identify quantitatively measurable morphologic optical coherence tomography (OCT) characteristics in patients with an acute episode of central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) and evaluate their correlation to functional and psychological variables for their use in daily clinical practice. Methods Retinal thickness (RT), the height, area and volume of subretinal fluid (SRF)/pigment epithelium detachments were evaluated using the standardized procedures of the Vienna Reading Center. These morphologic characteristics were compared with functional variables [best‐corrected visual acuity (BCVA), contrast sensitivity (CS), retinal sensitivity/microperimetry, fixation stability], and patients’ subjective handicap from CSC using the ...
