The benefits of optical coherence tomography (OCT) have long been known as an imaging tool in ophthalmology, enabling the examination of the eye at microscopic resolution. But what may not be widely appreciated is that the use of visible light sources can improve upon the results of this well-developed technique in the detection and understanding of various eye-related diseases such as macular degeneration and glaucoma.
While most commercial OCT and OCTA (angiography) systems use NIR light for economic and technical reasons, broadband visible light sources have expanded from 400 to 2000 nm or more. This has enabled the imaging of the complete vascular network and all five of the outer retinal layers. With resulting higher resolution…READ MORE
