    6. Central Corneal Thickness Reproducibility among Ten Different Instruments

      Central Corneal Thickness Reproducibility among Ten Different Instruments
      Purpose: To assess agreement between one ultrasonic (US) and nine optical instruments for the measurement of central corneal thickness (CCT), and to evaluate intra- and inter-operator reproducibility. Methods: In this observational cross-sectional study, two masked operators measured CCT thickness twice in 28 healthy eyes. We used seven spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) devices, one time-domain OCT, one Scheimpflug camera, and one US-based instrument. Inter- and intra-operator reproducibility was evaluated by ...

    7. Vessel density analysis in patients with retinitis pigmentosa by means of optical coherence tomography angiography

      Vessel density analysis in patients with retinitis pigmentosa by means of optical coherence tomography angiography
      Aims To describe the vascular abnormalities in patients affected by retinitis pigmentosa (RP) by means of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A). Methods Cross-sectional case series; patients with RP presenting at the Medical Retina Service of the Department of Ophthalmology, University Vita-Salute San Raffaele in Milan were recruited. Inclusion criteria were: diagnosis of RP, clear ocular media, adequate pupillary dilation, and stable fixation. Patients underwent best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), biomicroscopy, short-wavelength ...

    9. Correlation of SD-OCT findings and visual function in patients with retinitis pigmentosa

      Correlation of SD-OCT findings and visual function in patients with retinitis pigmentosa
      Purpose To describe the morphological macular changes detected by spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) in eyes with retinitis pigmentosa (RP) and to analyze their correlation with the visual function. Methods Twenty-two patients (44 eyes) patients affected by RP were recruited. The following structures were evaluated on SD-OCT: outer plexiform layer (OPL), outer nuclear layer (ONL), external limiting membrane (ELM), photoreceptor inner/outer segment (IS/OS) junction, photoreceptor outer segment ...

    13. Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography evaluation of vitreoretinal adhesions in idiopathic epiretinal membranes

      Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography evaluation of vitreoretinal adhesions in idiopathic epiretinal membranes
      Background Vitreoretinal adhesions play a key role in the vector forces exerted on the vitreoretinal interface, leading to tractional retina deformation and macular hole formation. The aim of this study was to identify the presence of vitreopapillary and vitreofoveal adhesions in idiopathic epiretinal membranes (ERMs) with spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and to evaluate their influence on the vitreoretinal interface. Methods Sixty-five eyes (65 patients) with idiopathic ERM and 64 ...

    14. Characteristic SD-OCT Findings in Preeclampsia

      Characteristic SD-OCT Findings in Preeclampsia
      High-resolution spectral-domain optical coherence tomography of a patient affected by acute macular edema secondary to preeclampsia is described. The particular optical coherence tomography pattern was characterized by bilateral macular edema with a tent-shaped organization, associated with massive neurosensorial retinal detachment. Many hyperreflective irregular dots were evident in the context of a subfoveal clear cystic lesion. A different hyperreflective irregularity was detected in the retinal pigment epithelium. The central role of ...
