Albinism refers to a group of genetic abnormalities in melanogenesis that are associated neuronal misrouting through the optic chiasm. We perform quantitative assessment of visual pathway structure and function in 23 persons with albinism (PWA) and 20 matched controls using optical coherence tomography (OCT), volumetric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), diffusion tensor imaging and visual evoked potentials (VEP). PWA had a higher streamline decussation index (percentage of total tractography streamlines decussating at the chiasm) compared with controls (Z = -2...

Purpose: To evaluate the effects of age, race, and ethnicity on the optic nerve and peripapillary retina using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) three-dimensional (3D) volume scans in normal subjects. Methods: This is a cross-sectional study performed at a single institution in Boston. All patients received retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) scans and an optic nerve 3D volume scan. The SD-OCT software calculated peripapillary RNFL thickness, retinal thickness (RT), and retinal volume (RV)...

PURPOSE: Bedside examination of premature infants at risk for retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is predominantly performed with ophthalmoscopic en face viewing of the retina. While postmortem retinal microstructures have been studied at the vascular-avascular junction, a critical location for pathogenesis of ROP, to date this has not been possible in vivo . Here we present bedside, non-sedated in vivo cross-sectional imaging and analysis of retinal microstructures at the vascular-avascular junction in infants with ROP using handheld spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT)...

Aim: To present a series of 2 cases of central serous chorioretinopathy and the changes in the macular pigment optical density during the evolution of the disease. Material and methods: A 32-year-old patient presented himself for blurred vision on his LE. The SD OCT imaging revealed serous macular detachment of the neurosensory retina on the LE. The MPOD results were 0.72 on RE and 0.91 on LE. After treatment and resorption of the subretinal fluid, the MPOD values were 0.72 on the RE and 0.82 on the LE. The second patient was a 36-year-old male with metamorphopsia on LE and serous macular detachment on this eye...

The effect of significant changes in corneal power after refractive surgery on the parameters of optical coherence tomography (OCT) has not been sufficiently studied. PURPOSE: To study effects of corneal refractive surgery on optical coherence tomography (OCT) measurements in patients with moderate and high myopia. MATERIAL AND METHODS: OCT was performed in 62 patients (62 eyes) with myopia over 4 D before and one month after LASIK. The changes in 14 parameters of the thickness of the retina, ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer (GCIPL) and peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (pRNFL) were analyzed...

A recently introduced modification of OCT - Enhanced Depth Imaging (EDI) allows observation of deep choroid and sclera. PURPOSE: To specify clinicomorphologic correlations between OCT signs related to CM and its pathomorphological state as described in literature. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study included 33 patients with predominantly small CM who were examined with EDI-OCT...

PURPOSE: To describe the optical coherence tomography (OCT) angiography features of subretinal fibrosis in eyes with myopic choroidal neovascularization after natural evolution or secondary to intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor therapy. METHODS: Retrospective observational case series. All eyes underwent a multimodal imaging examination including fluorescein angiography, spectral domain OCT, OCT angiography, and en face OCT. RESULTS: Twenty-five eyes of 25 patients with mean age of 56...

PURPOSE: To determine the significance of the correlation between optical coherence tomographic (OCT) findings and focal macular electroretinograms (fmERG) at 12 months after beginning intravitreal injections of ranibizumab (IVR) in eyes with age-related macular degeneration (AMD). STUDY DESIGN: Prospective, clinical study. METHOD: We studied 28 eyes of 28 patients with AMD treated with IVR at monthly intervals for the initial three months...

BACKGROUND: Clinical imaging modalities including optical coherence tomography (OCT) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) are vital in Multiple Sclerosis (MS), but their relationships during the different phases of Retinal ganglion cell (RGC) degeneration are not clear. We hypothesize that initial injury in optic nerve causes axonal degeneration leading to RGC loss in retina, which can be characterized by a combination of DTI and OCT. Our objective was to examine the correlation between noninvasive and histological data to chronicle the degeneration profile of RGCs in the retina and optic nerve in a mouse model of MS...

PURPOSE: To evaluate pre-operative and post-operative morphologic characteristics in idiopathic macular epiretinal membrane (ERM) by optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). METHODS: Thirty-three subjects with unilateral idiopathic ERM were enrolled and the contralateral eyes served as controls. Vascular parameters including superficial capillary plexus (SCP), deep capillary plexus (DCP), outer capillary plexus (OCP), and choroidal capillary plexus (CCP) were evaluated by OCTA...

BACKGROUND: A rodent model of photodynamic AION resulting from intravenous verteporfin is presented. The analysis of the morphological function, the pathological changes and the potential mechanism of action were further investigated. METHODS: Photodynamic treatment was conducted on the optic nerve head (ONH) following administration of the photosensitizer. The fellow eye was considered as sham control. Fundus Fluorescein angiography (FFA), spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and Flash-visual evoked potential (F-VEP) recordings were conducted at different time points...

Automated measurements of the human cone mosaic requires the identification of individual cone photoreceptors. The current gold standard, manual labeling, is a tedious process and can not be done in a clinically useful timeframe. As such, we present an automated algorithm for identifying cone photoreceptors in adaptive optics optical coherence tomography (AO-OCT) images. Our approach fine-tunes a pre-trained convolutional neural network originally trained on AO scanning laser ophthalmoscope (AO-SLO) images, to work on previously unseen data from a different imaging modality...

Retinal changes and visual symptoms are present in several inflammatory, degenerative and tumorous disorders of the central nervous system (CNS). Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a method that can be used in clinical practice to detect and quantify the structural correlates of these visual symptoms in neurological disorders. OCT is a non-invasive imaging technique, based on interferometry, which can create high-resolution images of the retina and measure the thickness and volume of the different retinal layers...

A pilot prospective, interventional study has been conducted on 10 patients with diabetic macular edema (DME) treated with subthreshold micropulse laser (SMPL) to evaluate changes of individual retinal layers and to correlate with functional changes. All patients underwent complete ophthalmologic evaluation including spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) and microperimetry at baseline, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, and 12 months. Compared with baseline, a significant decrease was found in inner nuclear layer (INL) and outer retinal layer (ORL) thickness in the central 1 mm (P < ...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography (SS-OCTA) and different boundary-specific segmentation strategies were used to distinguish type 1 macular neovascularization (MNV) from type 2 MNV in eyes with exudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Eyes with exudative AMD were enrolled in a prospective study. Segmentation strategies included a slab from the outer retina (OR) to the choriocapillaris (CC) for the entire MNV, a slab from the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) to the CC for the type 1 MNV, and a slab from the OR to the RPE for the type 2 MNV...
