Paper Abstract

In order to diagnose certain ocular diseases such as macular edema and atrophy, and to monitor their therapy closely, an accurate measurement of the retinal thickness is essential. We have developed a method which is capable of providing a quantitative thickness profile along a 2 mm length on the retina. A preliminary evaluation of the instrument was performed in normal human subjects. With this method, the retinal thickness can be visualized in a region extending from the optic disc to the fovea and the reproducibility of the measurement was found to be 8% (32 microns).
