      BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate the utility of widefield swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography (SS-OCTA) for the diagnosis and management of proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Consecutive patients with vision-threatening diabetic retinopathy were imaged with widefield SS-OCTA using the 12 mm 12 mm scan pattern. RESULTS: Twenty-four eyes of 12 patients underwent SS-OCTA imaging. In all 24 eyes, the en face total retinal flow images detected areas of ...

    3. Computational Methods to Quantify Human Lens Shape and Optical Properties Using Laser Ray Tracing and Optical Coherence Tomography (Thesis)

      Computational Methods to Quantify Human Lens Shape and Optical Properties Using Laser Ray Tracing and Optical Coherence Tomography (Thesis)
      Vision is worsening on a global scale. Myopia, a visual condition where distant objects appear blurry, is increasing in prevalence at an alarming rate. This condition typically starts during childhood and progressively worsens, potentially leading to more severe visual conditions if left unchecked. Currently, the best treatment method to slow myopic progression is heavily debated as the etiology of myopia is not fully understood. The development of effective long-term solutions ...

    4. Widefield optical coherence tomography of foveal dragging in retinopathy of prematurity

      Widefield optical coherence tomography of foveal dragging in retinopathy of prematurity
      Dear Editor, Despite substantial advances in neonatal medicine, retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) continues to be a serious therapeutic challenge[1]. Visual acuity loss in patients with ROP has been associated with structural retinal abnormalities (including retinal detachment, retinal folds, and pigmentary retinopathy), cataract, glaucoma, and amblyopia due to refractive error or strabismus[2]. A subset of patients with ROP, either treated or untreated may develop temporal dragging of the fovea ...

    7. Identification of Retinal Biomarkers in Alzheimer’s Disease Using Optical Coherence Tomography: Recent Insights, Challenges, and Opportunities

      Identification of Retinal Biomarkers in Alzheimer’s Disease Using Optical Coherence Tomography: Recent Insights, Challenges, and Opportunities
      This review will highlight recent insights into measuring retinal structure in Alzheimers disease (AD). A growing body of evidence indicates that disturbances in retinal blood flow and structure are related to cognitive function, which can severely impair vision. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an optical imaging technology that may allow researchers and physicians to gain deeper insights into retinal morphology and clarify the impact of AD on retinal health and ...

    8. Quantification of Ciliary Muscle Function through Morphological Analysis of Optical Coherence Tomography Images (Thesis)

      Quantification of Ciliary Muscle Function through Morphological Analysis of Optical Coherence Tomography Images (Thesis)
      s we grow older, we lose our ability to accommodate, or focus from far to near, in a condition called presbyopia. Presbyopia is an issue in our everyday life, complicating routine tasks such as using smartphones or reading street signs while driving. To develop effective therapies to treat presbyopia, we need to understand the changes in the eye that occur with age. We need to be able to observe the ...

    9. Off-axis optical coherence tomography imaging of the crystalline lens to reconstruct the gradient refractive index using optical methods

      Off-axis optical coherence tomography imaging of the crystalline lens to reconstruct the gradient refractive index using optical methods
      Earlier studies have shown that the gradient index of refraction (GRIN) of the crystalline lens can be reconstructed in vitro using Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) images. However, the methodology cannot be extended in vivo because it requires accurate measurements of the external geometry of the lens. Specifically, the posterior surface is measured by flipping the lens so that the posterior lens surface faces the OCT beam, a method that cannot ...

    10. Automatic Segmentation of Corneal Microlayers on Optical Coherence Tomography Images

      Automatic Segmentation of Corneal Microlayers on Optical Coherence Tomography Images
      Purpose : To propose automatic segmentation algorithm (AUS) for corneal microlayers on optical coherence tomography (OCT) images. Methods : Eighty-two corneal OCT scans were obtained from 45 patients with normal and abnormal corneas. Three testing data sets totaling 75 OCT images were randomly selected. Initially, corneal epithelium and endothelium microlayers are estimated using a corneal mask and locally refined to obtain final segmentation. Flat-epithelium and flat-endothelium images are obtained and vertically projected ...

      Use of High-Resolution Optical Coherence Tomography in the Surgical Management of Ocular Surface Squamous Neoplasia: A Pilot Study
      Purpose To evaluate whether high-resolution optical coherence tomography (HR-OCT) can detect histologic tumor margins of ocular surface squamous neoplasia (OSSN). Methods Eight eyes of 8 patients with OSSN undergoing excision were studied prospectively. Immediately before surgery, the tumor was imaged using a commercially available HR-OCT (Bioptigen/Leica Microsystems, Buffalo Grove, IL) to identify the conjunctival margins of the neoplastic lesion. The tumor borders of the lesion determined by HR-OCT were ...
