Advances in Whole-Eye Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging.
Contemporary anterior segment and retinal optical coherence tomography (OCT) systems only image their particular designated region of the eye and cannot image both areas of the eye at once. This separation is due to the differences in optical system design needed to properly image the front or back of the eye and also due to limitations in the imaging depth of current commercial OCT systems. More recently, research and commercial OCT systems capable of "whole-eye" imaging have been described. These whole-eye OCT systems enable applications such as ocular biometry for cataract surgery, ocular shape analysis for myopia, and others. Further, these whole-eye OCT systems allow us to image the eye as an integrated whole rather than as separate, independent divisions.
