    9. Cornea characterization using a combined multiphoton microscopy and optical coherence tomography system

      Cornea characterization using a combined multiphoton microscopy and optical coherence tomography system

      We present a multimodal imaging system which combines multiphoton microscopy and optical coherence tomography to visualize the morphological structures, and to quantify the refractive index (RI) and thickness of cornea. The morphological similarities and differences at different corneal layers across various species are identified. In the piscine and human corneas, the stromata exhibit thin fibers that indicate an overall collagen direction. Human corneas display collagen micro-folds which cause increased light attenuation. In the murine, porcine and bovine corneas, the stromata show interwoven collagen patterns. The Bowman’s layer and the Descemet’s membrane are also distinguished in some species. The ...

    10. Paracentral acute middle maculopathy spectral-domain optical coherence tomography feature of deep capillary ischemia

      Paracentral acute middle maculopathy spectral-domain optical coherence tomography feature of deep capillary ischemia

      Purpose of Review To describe the novel spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) finding of paracentral acute middle maculopathy (PAMM) that can be associated with acute macular neuroretinopathy (AMN) or retinal vasculopathy, and that may indicate an underlying pathogenesis related to ischemia of the retinal deep capillary plexus (DCP). Recent Findings With the advent of high-definition SD-OCT imaging, we are now able to detect deep capillary ischemia. Although cotton wool spots are caused by ischemia of the superficial capillary plexus, PAMM is caused by ischemia of the DCP, and appears as hyper-reflective, band-like lesions in the middle retina, extending from the ...

    11. Optical coherence tomography and visual evoked potentials in healthy persons

      Optical coherence tomography and visual evoked potentials in healthy persons

      Purpose Optical coherence tomography (OCT) and Visual evoked potentials (VEPs) represent non-invasive objective examination of the visual system. While the OCT measures a morphological property of the retina (thickness of the retinal nerve fibre layer – RNFL), the VEP allows assessment a function of the visual system. There are numerous studies describing a mutual involvement of both mentioned aspects in diseases like multiple sclerosis, optic neuritis or glaucoma, however, normative studies of these relationship are missing. In our study we address this issue with an expectation to translate the findings into interpretation of pathological findings. Methods We examined a group of ...

    14. Expanding OCT: Quanitifying the Cornea’s Optical Performance

      Expanding OCT: Quanitifying the Cornea’s Optical Performance

      Optical coherence tomography, a well-known method for imaging the retina, may allow physicians to perform quantitative metrology of the eye’s own optics. Swept-source OCT allows for simultaneous imaging of the cornea, iris and retina in living patients. Laser refractive surgeries such as laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) and photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) have brought better vision to tens of millions worldwide. But these techniques also exact a cost: because they work by reshaping the eye’s cornea, they make accurate measurement of the cornea’s optical parameters after surgery unreliable using conventional tools. That’s important, not only because inaccurate ...

      Seeing the Light: How Photonics Continues to Improve Eyesight

      In 1981, Rangaswamy “Sri” Srinivasan, a researcher at IBM’s Thomas J. Watson Research Center, experimented with a pulsed argon fluoride (ArF) excimer laser on turkey leftovers, and lasers have had an ever-growing role in ophthalmology ever since. That landmark resulted in the first laser-based vision-correction techniques, including laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (lasik) and photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) techniques. Ophthalmology uses numerous photonic technologies – Nd:YAG and femtosecond excimer lasers, 3-D imaging techniques and OCT (optical coherence tomography) – to diagnose and treat eye diseases and vision problems. Today, these techniques are being combined into systems that are revolutionizing the eye surgeon ...
