PURPOSE To investigate the relationship between myopia and macular thickness, as measured by optical coherence tomography. METHODS A total of 143 normal subjects comprising 80 eyes with high myopia (spherical equivalent [SE] < -6.0 D), 37 eyes with low to moderate myopia (SE between -6.0 and -0.5 D), and 26 nonmyopic eyes (SE > -0.5 D) were analyzed in(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the reproducibility of anterior chamber angle measurements obtained by swept-source optical coherence tomography (OCT) and to identify factors associated with its measurement variability. METHODS One eye from each of 30 healthy subjects was randomly selected for anterior segment OCT imaging (Casia SS-1000 OCT; Tomey, Nagoya, Japan) in(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the longitudinal profiles of microgliosis after optic nerve injury induced by optic nerve crush and acute elevation of intraocular pressure (IOP). METHODS A confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscope was used to image the retinal microglia of the CX3CR1(GFP/+) transgenic mice in vivo at baseline, 3 days and then weekly for 4 weeks after(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the relationships between optic disc measurements, obtained by an optical coherence tomograph and a confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscope, and myopia. METHODS One hundred thirty-three eyes from 133 healthy subjects with mean spherical equivalent -6.0 +/- 4.2 D (range, -13.13 to +3.25 D) were analyzed. Optic disc measurements including(More)
PURPOSE To compare macular thickness measurements obtained from time domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) and spectral domain OCT and to evaluate their repeatability and agreement. METHODS Thirty-five healthy normal subjects were included. In one randomly selected eye in each subject, three serial macular measurements were obtained from a time domain(More)
PURPOSE To compare anterior chamber angle measurements obtained from two anterior segment optical coherence tomography (OCT) instruments and to evaluate their agreements and interobserver reproducibility. METHODS Forty-nine eyes from 49 healthy normal subjects were studied. The anterior chamber angle was imaged with the Visante anterior segment OCT (Carl(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate optical coherence tomography (OCT) retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT) measurement for glaucoma progression analysis. METHODS One hundred sixteen eyes of 64 patients with glaucoma who were observed within a period of 5 years were included. All eyes had at least four serial RNFL measurements obtained with the Stratus OCT (Carl(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the relationship between retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness measured by optical coherence tomography (OCT) and the axial length/refractive error of the eye. METHODS A total of 115 eyes of 115 healthy subjects, comprising 75 eyes with high myopia (spherical equivalent [SE] < -6.0 D) and 40 eyes with low to moderate myopia (SE(More)
PURPOSE To monitor and measure dendritic shrinkage of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) in a strain of transgenic mice (Thy-1 YFP) that expresses yellow fluorescent proteins in neurons under the control of a Thy-1 promoter. METHODS A total of 125 RGCs from 16 eyes of Thy-1 YFP transgenic mice were serially imaged with a confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscope(More)
Current methods for in vivo retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) imaging involve either retrograde or intravitreal injection of chemical or biological tracers, which are invasive and may require repeated injection for serial long-term assessment. We have developed a confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscope technique (blue-light CSLO or bCSLO) to image retinal(More)
