Paper Abstract

Polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT) has been used to visualize the orientation of the nerves in the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and to visualize depolarization in retinas of healthy volunteers and age-related macular degeneration (AMD) patients. Optic axis orientation images clearly visualize the nerve fibers leaving the optic nerve head (ONH) in all radial directions in healthy volunteers. Depolarization images show depolarization of the RPE and for some cases, highlight another depolarizing layer at the boundary of the choroid and sclera.
