      Daily Self-Imaging with Home OCT Viable Among Patients with nAMD

      New findings suggest daily home optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging has feasibility among patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) . The home OCT additionally allowed for detailed graphical and mathematical analyses of retinal fluid volume trajectories, including novel parameters in order to inform clinical decision making. “It demonstrated good agreement with human expert grading for retinal fluid identification and excellent agreement with the in-clinic OCT scans,” wrote study author Jeffrey Heier, MD, Ophthalmic Consultants of Boston. The prospective, observational study aimed to validate the performance of a home OCT system (Notal Vision Home OCT) for daily self-imaging at home and ...

    2. RNFL Thinning Linked to Poor Visual Acuity in Preterm Infants

      RNFL Thinning Linked to Poor Visual Acuity in Preterm Infants

      Findings from a recent observational study suggest the evaluation of retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness using optical coherence tomography (OCT) may help identify preterm infants at risk for poor vision outcomes. Data show the thinning of the RNFL across the papillomacular bundle (PMB) had associations with poorer 9-month visual acuity, found independent of birth weight, gestational age, need for retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) treatment, and macular microanatomy. “Our findings suggest that RNFL thinning across the PMB may be an early biomarker of global disruptions in neurodevelopment that put preterm infants at risk for poorer vision outcomes,” wrote study author ...

    3. Rapid Vessel Density Loss Linked to Faster Rate of Visual Field Loss

      Rapid Vessel Density Loss Linked to Faster Rate of Visual Field Loss

      Rapid vessel density loss was associated with a higher concurrent and subsequent rates of visual field loss during an extended period in patients with suspected glaucoma and primary-open angle glaucoma (POAG). After dividing the eyes into fast and slow optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA), these findings in a recent cohort study found a signficantly greater rate of visual field mean deviation loss was faster for fast OCTA progressors during a 4-year follow-up period. “This finding is clinically relevant if subsequent prospective studies confirm that fast progressors identified by OCTA are at higher risk of functional loss and may need more ...
