    3. Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscopes

      Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscopes
      A scanning laser ophthalmoscope (SLO) for imaging the retina of an eye comprises a source ( 12 ) of collimated light, a scanning device ( 14, 16, 1328, 1319 ), a scan transfer device ( 20 ) and a detector ( 1310 ). The scan transfer device has a first focus ( 16 ) at which an apparent point source is provided and a second focus ( 24 ) at which an eye ( 524, 1324 ) may be accommodated. The scan transfer device ...

    4. Intraoperative OCT improves ophthalmic surgery

      Intraoperative OCT improves ophthalmic surgery
      The most popular examination method in ophthalmology today is optical coherence tomography (OCT ). Traditionally, OCT examinations have been performed pre- and post-operatively in vitreo-retinal surgery. While this application of the technology has enabled outcomes to be measured and results to be documented, surgeons have not had the ability to incorporate the results to improve surgical treatments. But with considerable advances to OCTincluding high-definition OCT (HD OCT), 3D visualization , and adaptive ...

    6. Comparison of retinal nerve fiber layer and macular thickness measurements with Stratus OCT and OPKO/ OTI OCT devices in healthy subjects

      Comparison of retinal nerve fiber layer and macular thickness measurements with Stratus OCT and OPKO/ OTI OCT devices in healthy subjects
      AIM: To compare retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and macular thickness measurements obtained with the Stratus optical coherence tomography (OCT) and OPKO/OTI OCT devices. METHODS: Included in the study were 59 eyes of 30 participants. All measurements for each eye were done on the same day with both devices. Student's paired tests were used to compare the central macular thickness and RNFL measurements of the Stratus OCT and ...

    7. Evaluation of retinal nerve fiber layer thickness in Alzheimer disease using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography

      Evaluation of retinal nerve fiber layer thickness in Alzheimer disease using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography
      Background/aim: To evaluate the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness in patients with Alzheimer disease (AD) and to compare the results with those of healthy controls. Materials and methods: Forty patients (mean age: 75.02 6.34 years; 23 women) with untreated AD and 40 age-, sex-, and educationmatched healthy patients were examined in this case-control prospective study. All patients underwent detailed ophthalmic and neurological examination. The Mini Mental ...
