Paper Abstract

Corneal and anterior segment optical coherence tomography has been developed to measure cross-sectional images of the anterior eye segment non-invasively. Since conventional OCT measures only the backscattering intensity, it is often difficult to discriminate the tissues of the anterior eye segment to each other, such as conjunctiva, sclera, trabecular meshwork and small blood vessels. To enhance the contrast of these tissues, we develop a multi-functional swept-source OCT that can measure intensity, birefringence and Doppler flow images simultaneously. In addition to the structural intensity images, characteristic birefringence and Doppler flow of these tissues are imaged.
