Many astronauts experience ocular structural and functional changes during long-duration spaceflight, including choroidal folds, optic disc edema, globe flattening, optic nerve sheath diameter (ONSD) distension, retinal nerve fiber layer thickening, and decreased visual acuity. The leading hypothesis suggests that weightlessness-induced cephalad fluid shifts increase intracranial pressure (ICP), which contributes to the ocular structural changes, but elevated ambient CO2 levels on the International Space Station may also be a factor...

Purpose: Recent studies indicate that the amount of deformation of the peripapillary retinal pigment epithelium and Bruch's membrane (pRPE/BM) toward or away from the vitreous may reflect acute changes in cerebrospinal fluid pressure. The study purpose is to determine if changes in optic-nerve-head (ONH) shape reflect a treatment effect (acetazolamide/placebo + weight management) using the optical coherence tomography (OCT) substudy of the Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension Treatment Trial (IIHTT) at baseline, 3, and 6 months...

PURPOSE: Optic pit is a congenital anomaly with malformation similar to coloboma of the optic disc. The cause of optic pit maculopathy is controversial. We used high resolution OCT to investigate changes in the vitreoretinal and vitreopapillary transition within optic pit eyes. METHODS: The vitreoretinal and vitreo-papillary transition of 12 eyes was accurately analyzed using SD-OCT. We registered the following criteria: liquefaction of prepapillary vitreous, papillary vitreous traction, discontinuity within the hyaloid cortex and communication spaces between pit and retinal edema...

Importance: Alterations in ocular blood flow play an important role in the pathogenesis and progression of diabetic retinopathy (DR). However, the measurement of retinal blood flow in clinical studies has been challenging. En face Doppler optical coherence tomography (OCT) provides an effective method for measuring total retinal blood flow (TRBF) in the clinic. Objective: To investigate TRBF in eyes with DR of varying severity, with or without diabetic macular edema (DME), using en face Doppler OCT...

Optic disc drusen (ODD) are benign congenital anomalies of the optic nerve characterized by calcified hyaline bodies. While superficial drusen can be diagnosed easily during fundus examination, detecting buried drusen requires the use of additional imaging methods such as B-scan ultrasonography (USG), fundus fluorescein angiography (FFA), computed tomography (CT) and fundus autofluorescence (FAF). ODD can be detected by USG with the presentation of highly reflective round structures. ODD appear as hyperautofluorescent areas on FAF and bright spots on CT scans...

Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease, a severe bilateral granulomatous intraocular inflammation associated with serous retinal detachments, disk edema, and vitritis, with eventual development of a sunset glow fundus, is an autoimmune inflammatory condition mediated by T cells that target melanocytes in individuals susceptible to the disease. Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada disease presents clinically in 4 different phases: prodromal, uveitic, convalescent, and recurrent, with extraocular manifestations including headache, meningismus, hearing loss, poliosis, and vitiligo, to varying degrees...

Diabetic retinopathy and diabetic macular edema (DME) are leading causes of blindness throughout the world, and cause significant visual morbidity. Ocular imaging has played a significant role in the management of diabetic eye disease, and the advent of advanced imaging modalities will be of great value as our understanding of diabetic eye diseases increase, and the management options become increasingly varied and complex. Color fundus photography has established roles in screening for diabetic eye disease, early detection of progression, and monitoring of treatment response...

A 64-year-old woman, with a history of diabetes and melanoma, developed a central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) in her left eye. On exam, she had severe disc edema with retinal nerve fiber layer thickening, and anterior deformation of the peripapillary retinal pigment epithelium (RPE)/Bruch membrane layer (ppRPE/BM) toward the vitreous on spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) suggesting an optic nerve sheath (ONS) meningioma. Magnetic resonance imaging findings and ONS biopsy later confirmed a metastatic melanoma...

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a relatively new technology that is now routinely and very widely used by ophthalmologists for structural documentation of the optic nerve and retina. In neuro-ophthalmology and neurology, the value of OCT is ever expanding; its role in an increasing number of conditions is being reported in parallel with the advances of the technology. Currently, as a clinical tool, OCT is particularly useful for the structural measurement of peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer thickness, optic nerve head volumetric analysis, and macular anatomy...

CASES REPORT: Two patients presented with headache and bilateral papillary edema. Patient 1 was found to have a papilledema (P) with intracranial pressure of 32cmH2O. Patient 2 was found to have a migraine with a pseudopapilledema (PP) (optic nerve head drusen). SD-OCT was used to image the optic disc, subretinal hyporeflective space (SHS), and alpha-angle (Aα). DISCUSSION: Optic disc SD-OCT may be useful for differentiating disc morphology in P and PP. The area of the SHS and the Aα were higher in the P patient than in the patient with PP...
