    2. 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 ...

    4. 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 ...

    5. Evaluation of scleral-fixated intraocular lens position anomalies by anterior segment optical coherence tomography

      Evaluation of scleral-fixated intraocular lens position anomalies by anterior segment optical coherence tomography
      BACKGROUND/AIM: To measure the positions of scleral-fixated intraocular lenses (IOLs) using anterior segment optical coherence tomography (OCT) and to evaluate the influence of the position of scleral-fixated IOL on the quality of vision. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-six eyes of 26 patients were included in the study. The average age was 57.5 (11 to 78) years. Anterior segment images were taken using slit lamp optical coherence tomography (SL-OCT) and ...

    6. Influence of disc area on retinal nerve fiber layer thickness measurement by spectral domain optical coherence tomography

      Influence of disc area on retinal nerve fiber layer thickness measurement by spectral domain optical coherence tomography
      Background: To examine the effect of optic disc area on peripapillary RNFLT (retinal nerve fiber layer thickness) measurement at circle diameter of 3.4 mm around optic nerve head using spectral OCT/SLO (Optical coherence tomography/scanning laser ophthalmoscope). Materials and Methods : In this prospective, cross sectional study, one hundred and two eyes of 102 normal subjects underwent RNFLT and disc area measurement using spectral OCT/SLO. Based on disc ...

    7. Intra-operative OCT devices for ophthalmic use: an overview

      Intra-operative OCT devices for ophthalmic use: an overview
      It is feasible to bring the currently most used examination method in ophthalmology, optical coherence tomography (OCT), into ophthalmic surgery to enhance information and control for the surgeon and increase outcome for the patient. In this overview, the currently commercially available OCT devices intending intra-operative OCT imaging are described. Further experience with these systems might not only aid in solving current problems but also open our minds to detect processes ...

    8. Improvements In Or Relating To Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscopes

      Improvements In Or Relating To 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 ...

    9. Development of a widefield phantom eye for retinal optical coherence tomography

      Development of a widefield phantom eye for retinal optical coherence tomography
      We report the design, manufacture and assessment of a phantom eye that can be used to measure the performance and accuracy of ophthalmic-OCT devices. We base our design on a wide-field schematic eye, R. Navarro, J. Opt. Soc. Am. A 2 (1985), to allow the assessment of device performance relative to 70 external field of view. We have fabricated the phantom eye and have verified the structural dimensions of the ...

  2. About Optos

    Optos

    Optos is an innovative retinal imaging company with a vision to be recognised as the leading provider of retinal diagnostics. Optos designs, develops, manufactures and markets retinal imaging devices that create optomap images.  Ophthalmic Technologies Incorporated was acquired by Optos in September 2011 from OPKO Health which acquired it in November 2007. Ophthalmic Technologies Inc. is dedicated to providing technologically advanced, easy-to-use equipment for ophthalmology. Offering innovative systems, with advanced imaging capabilities, OTI provides tools that meet the needs of ophthalmologists and surgeons worldwide. A new Optical Coherence Tomography system for the posterior segment was added to OTI's product line in 2005. OTI's head office is located in Toronto, Ontario, with its Research and Development branch office in Kingston, Ontario.
