Paper Abstract

Ultrahigh resolution ophthalmic OCT has been performed in more than 250 eyes of 160 patients, demonstrating unprecedented visualization of intraretinal morphology of several retinal pathologies. and therefore the potential to enhance sensitivity and specificity for early ophthalmic diagnosis as well as to monitor the efficacy of therapy. In addition, it might contribute to a better understanding of ocular pathogenesis. This is demonstrated by investigating both normal retinal morphology in an animal model and the impairment of the photoreceptor layer in different macular pathologies.
