Paper Abstract

The measurement of ocular blood flow is important in studying the pathophysiology and treatment of several leading causes of blindness. We present a method for in vivo human retinal flow measurement using Fourier domain optical coherence tomography. A double circular scanning pattern was used to scan the blood vessels around the optic nerve head 8 times over 2 seconds. The venous flow totaled 36.13 μl/min in the right eye of a volunteer. The flow difference was observed before and after breath holding. The fast flow measurement method did not require any assumption on the flow profile over time or space.
