    2. Re: Goto et al.: Prediction of postoperative intraocular lens position with angle-to-angle depth using anterior segment optical coherence tomography (Ophthalmology. 2016;123:2474-2480)

      Re: Goto et al.: Prediction of postoperative intraocular lens position with angle-to-angle depth using anterior segment optical coherence tomography (Ophthalmology. 2016;123:2474-2480)
      To the Editor: We read with interest the study by Goto et al, 1 who described a new formula to predict the postoperative position of the intraocular lens (IOL). Although their results are interesting and might be useful for IOL power calculation, we feel that some comments are necessary. First, comparing what they define as the postoperative external anterior chamber depth, either measured or predicted by anterior segment optical coherence ...

    3. Optical coherence tomography angiography of the peripapillary retina and optic nerve head in dominant optic atrophy

      Optical coherence tomography angiography of the peripapillary retina and optic nerve head in dominant optic atrophy
      Peripapillar and nerve head vessel density (VD) was measured in 10 patients affected by Dominant optic atrophy (DOA) using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) and compared to the measurements of 15 age- and gender-matched controls. DOA patients showed VD reduction, mostly in the temporal and inferotemporal peripapillary sectors, according to the preferential involvement of the papillomacular bundle. Despite poor best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), OCT-A revealed good repeatability. VD correlated with ...

    4. Repeatability and interobserver reproducibility of a new optical biometer based on swept-source optical coherence tomography and comparison with IOLMaster

      Repeatability and interobserver reproducibility of a new optical biometer based on swept-source optical coherence tomography and comparison with IOLMaster
      Objective To evaluate the precision of the measurements in healthy subjects obtained with a new optical biometer (OA-2000, Tomey, Nagoya, Japan) using swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) and compare these measurements with those provided by the IOLMaster v5.4 (Carl Zeiss Meditec AG, Jena, Germany) using partial coherence interferometry (PCI). Methods Axial length (AL), keratometry (K) over 2.5 mm and 3.0 mm diameters, anterior chamber depth (ACD) (corneal ...

    5. Comparison of a new optical biometer using swept-source optical coherence tomography and a biometer using optical low-coherence reflectometry

      Comparison of a new optical biometer using swept-source optical coherence tomography and a biometer using optical low-coherence reflectometry
      Purpose To investigate agreement between the IOLMaster 700 based on swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) and the Lenstar LS 900 based on optical low-coherence reflectometry (OLCR). Setting Private practice, Castrop-Rouxelle, Germany. Design Prospective evaluation of diagnostic test. Methods Axial length (AL), keratometry (K), anterior chamber depth (corneal epithelium to lens) (ACD), lens thickness, and central corneal thickness (CCT) were measured in 183 eyes of 183 patients. Analyses used a paired ...

    6. The Repeatability Assessment of Three-Dimensional Capsule-Intraocular Lens Complex Measurements by Means of High-Speed Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography

      The Repeatability Assessment of Three-Dimensional Capsule-Intraocular Lens Complex Measurements by Means of High-Speed Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography
      Purpose To rebuild the three-dimensional (3-D) model of the anterior segment by high-speed swept-source optical coherence tomography (SSOCT) and evaluate the repeatability of measurement for the parameters of capsule-intraocular lens (C-IOL) complex. Methods Twenty-two pseudophakic eyes from 22 patients were enrolled. Three continuous SSOCT measurements were performed in all eyes and the tomograms obtained were used for 3-D reconstruction. The output data were used to evaluate the measurement repeatability. The ...

    7. Corneal Power Measurement Obtained by Fourier-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography: Repeatability, Reproducibility, and Comparison With Scheimpflug and Automated Keratometry Measurements

      Corneal Power Measurement Obtained by Fourier-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography: Repeatability, Reproducibility, and Comparison With Scheimpflug and Automated Keratometry Measurements
      Purpose: To assess the repeatability and reproducibility of corneal power values obtained by a Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) system (RTVue) and to compare them with the values obtained by a Scheimpflug camera system (Pentacam HR) and by automated keratometry (IOL Master). Methods: Thirty-two eyes from 32 healthy subjects were included in this prospective study. Two experienced observers measured each eye 3 consecutive times with the Pentacam, IOLMaster, and RTVue ...

    9. Choroidal Thickness Measurements

      Choroidal Thickness Measurements
      We read with interest recent article by Branchini et al, entitled “Reproducibility of choroidal thickness measurements across 3 spectral domain optical coherence tomography systems.” We commend the authors for their efforts in comparing these instruments, but we feel that their statistical methods may lead to invalid conclusions. The authors claimed to have investigated the reproducibility of choroidal thickness measurements by 3 different spectral domain optical coherence tomography devices, stating there ...

    10. OCT for glaucoma: Today and tomorrow

      OCT for glaucoma: Today and tomorrow
      Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) is now an established diagnostic tool for optic nerve diseases such as glaucoma. Since the first studies on glaucomatous eyes were published a decade ago using time-domain OCT (TD-OCT), remarkable advances have been realized. Today ophthalmologists can use SD-OCT to investigate several parameters in cases with any degree of glaucoma. These are derived from the peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL), the optic nerve head ...

    11. Comparison of Optic Nerve Head Parameter Measurements Obtained by Time-domain and Spectral-domain Optical Coherence Tomography

      Comparison of Optic Nerve Head Parameter Measurements Obtained by Time-domain and Spectral-domain Optical Coherence Tomography
      Purpose: To compare the measurements of the optic nerve head (ONH) parameters provided by time-domain (TD) and spectral-domain (SD) optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods: Four ONH parameters were analyzed: optic disc area, rim area, cup-to-disc area ratio (CDR), and vertical cup-to-disc ratio (VCDR). Stratus OCT and Cirrus HD-OCT were used to obtain measurements by TD-OCT and SD-OCT, respectively. Stratus OCT measurements were collected before and after manual correction of the ...
