    4. Optical Coherence Tomography in the UK Biobank Study – Rapid Automated Analysis of Retinal Thickness for Large Population-Based Studies

      Optical Coherence Tomography in the UK Biobank Study – Rapid Automated Analysis of Retinal Thickness for Large Population-Based Studies
      Purpose To describe an approach to the use of optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging in large, population-based studies, including methods for OCT image acquisition, storage, and the remote, rapid, automated analysis of retinal thickness. Methods In UK Biobank, OCT images were acquired between 2009 and 2010 using a commercially available spectral domain OCT device (3D OCT-1000, Topcon). Images were obtained using a raster scan protocol, 6 mm x 6 mm ...

    6. Spectral domain optical coherence tomography imaging of the aqueous outflow structures in normal participants of the EPIC-Norfolk Eye Study

      Spectral domain optical coherence tomography imaging of the aqueous outflow structures in normal participants of the EPIC-Norfolk Eye Study
      Purpose To measure the dimensions of aqueous outflow structures and to investigate associations with intraocular pressure (IOP) and ocular biometry parameters in an older British population. Method Fifty-two participants from the European Prospective Investigation of Cancer-Norfolk eye study underwent imaging using the Heidelberg Spectralis optical coherence tomographer with an anterior segment module. Pseudophakic participants and those known or suspected to have glaucoma were excluded, leaving 46 participants for analysis. Schwalbe ...

    11. Changes in Angle Configuration After Phacoemulsification Measured by Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography.

      Purpose: To measure changes in angle width after phacoemulsification and intraocular lens (IOL) implantation using anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT). Materials and Methods: Twenty-one patients undergoing cataract surgery were recruited from the National University Hospital, Singapore. AS-OCT images were obtained of nasal and temporal angle quadrants before and at 1-month after surgery. Optical measurements of central anterior chamber depth were obtained, and gonioscopic measurement of angle width was recorded ...

    12. Changes in anterior segment morphology in response to illumination and after laser iridotomy in Asian eyes: an anterior segment OCT study

      Aim: Using the anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) to quantify changes in anterior segment morphology going from light to dark and following laser iridotomy (LI). Methods: Prospective observational study. 17 consecutive subjects without peripheral anterior synechiae undergoing LI were evaluated using gonioscopy and AS-OCT. Angle configuration including angle opening distance (AOD) at 500 microns anterior to the scleral spur, AOD500, trabecular-iris space area up to 750 microns from the ...
