    5. Optical Coherence Tomography as a Predictor of Visual Outcomes after Phacoemulsification in Eyes with Preexisting Epiretinal Membranes

      Optical Coherence Tomography as a Predictor of Visual Outcomes after Phacoemulsification in Eyes with Preexisting Epiretinal Membranes
      Purpose: To elucidate optical coherence tomography features that may be predictive of visual outcomes after phacoemulsification in eyes with a primary and secondary Epiretinal Membrane (ERM). Patients and methods: Retrospective consecutive case series. Visual Acuity (VA) and Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT) characteristics at pre-operative and post-operative visits in eyes with pre- existing ERM that underwent uncomplicated phacoemulsification were analyzed. Results: In the 57 eyes, median VA improved significantly from ...

    6. Two-Year Risk of Exudation in Eyes with Nonexudative Age-Related Macular Degeneration and Subclinical Neovascularization Detected with Swept Source Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

      Two-Year Risk of Exudation in Eyes with Nonexudative Age-Related Macular Degeneration and Subclinical Neovascularization Detected with Swept Source Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography
      Purpose Swept source optical coherence tomography angiography (SS-OCTA) was used to study the prevalence, incidence, and natural history of subclinical macular neovascularization (MNV) in eyes with unilateral nonexudative age-related macular degeneration. Design Prospective cohort study. Methods Patients were imaged using 3- 3-mm and 6- 6-mm SS-OCTA scan patterns. MNV was detected using the outer retina to choriocapillaris en face slab. Prevalence and incidence of subclinical MNV, KaplanMeier cumulative estimates for ...

    7. Widefield Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography of Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy

      Widefield Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography of Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy
      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 ...

    8. 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 ...

    9. 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 ...

      Purpose: To describe the synergistic benefits and cost savings from the use of optical coherence tomography (OCT) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) inhibitors, particularly intravitreal bevacizumab, in the treatment of exudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Design: Retrospective literature review and personal perspective. Methods: Retrospective literature review and personal perspective.

    12. 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 ...

    13. 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 ...

    14. 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 ...
