Anterior Segment OCT Imaging techniques for assessing the structure and function of the anterior segment of the eye play a key role in diagnosing and treating various anterior segment disorders.
Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography
Anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) was recently developed and has become a crucial tool in clinical practice. AS-OCT is a non-contact imaging device that provides the detailed structure of the anterior part of the eyes.
Clinical Applications of Anterior Segment
Optical Coherence Tomography
AS-OCT can be widely applicable in various clinical diseases, including tear meniscus evaluation,ocular-surface disease, corneal dystrophies and stromal diseases, tissue change analysis after cataract and glaucoma surgery, and angle assessment. This noncontact-type technology with a high resolution and high reproducibility provide comprehensive and quantitative information.
