    1. Nailfold capillaroscopy with a commercially available optical coherence tomography angiography for ophthalmic use

      Nailfold capillaroscopy with a commercially available optical coherence tomography angiography for ophthalmic use

      Visualising capillaries in the retina and the nailfold provides an opportunity to improve our understanding of various systemic disorders including cardiovascular, metabolic, rheumatic, and eye diseases.1–5 Traditional nailfold capillaroscopy has been primarily utilised, during the last 40 years, to study the vascular components of connective tissue diseases.6,7 It has been established as a safe and noninvasive diagnostic tool that allows high magnification view of skin microcirculation as well assessment of capillary density and blood flow velocity.8,9 In ophthalmology, a number of studies have been conducted to assess eye diseases and their relationship with nailfold ...

    2. A Comparative Study between Fundus Imaging and Optical Coherence Tomography for the Early Diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease

      A Comparative Study between Fundus Imaging and Optical Coherence Tomography for the Early Diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease

      Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative condition as well as changes in retina region that leads to permanent memory loss. AD is presently creating lot of problems in care taking. There are lot of tests and imaging modalities to be performed for an effective diagnosis of the disease. The most popular of them are Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Positron Emission Tomography and Single Photon Emission CT Scanning. They can provide valuable information regarding the changes in brain regions for diagnosing AD. But the detailed study made on AD suggests that there are some variations on the retina region of the ...

    3. Foveal Hypoplasia in Oculocutaneous Albinism and the Role of OCT

      Foveal Hypoplasia in Oculocutaneous Albinism and the Role of OCT

      We describe a case of a 16 year old girl with Oculocutaneous albinism (OCA) who presented to us with photophobia and blurring of vision. She showed typical features of OCA, blonde hair, refractive error, iris transillumination and foveal hypoplasia. Our report highlights the role of macular OCT in diagnosis of foveal hypoplasia which is an essential feature of OCA.
