Ultra-high resolution optical coherence tomography for imaging the anterior segment of the eye.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Developments in optical coherence tomography (OCT) have expanded its clinical applications for ultra-high resolution imaging of the anterior segment of the human eye. This review presents the latest advances for imaging the anterior segment of the eye using ultra-high resolution OCT (UHR-OCT). Unique applications of UHR-OCT technology in clinical and basic scientific laboratory research are discussed and a summary of the results is provided. The authors focused on the use of UHR-OCT for imaging of tear dynamics, contact lens interactions with the corneal surface, and in vivo histological diagnosis of disorders of the cornea, as well as the future direction in this field.
