Optical coherence tomography (OCT) was first reported in 1991 as a non-invasive, cross-sec‐ tional ocular imaging technology (Huang et al., 1991) and today is the most promising noncontact, high resolution tomographic and biomicroscopic imaging device in ophthalmology. It is a computerized instrument structured on the principle of low-coherence(More)
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) was first reported in 1991 as a non-invasive ocular imaging technology (Huang et al, 1991; Hrynchak & Simpson, 2007). It generates a false-color representation of the tissue structures, based on the intensity of the returned light. Over years, the clinical applications of OCT have improved dramatically in precision and(More)
Although present worldwide, Acanthamoeba keratitis (AK) is a rare condition. It is a protozoal infection of the eye that is generally caused by wearing contaminated contact lenses or lens solutions. Confoscan and confocal scanning laser tomography (CSLT) are in vivo noninvasive diagnostic tools which provide high definition images of corneal(More)
Acanthamoeba keratitis is a protozoal infection of the eye, mainly due to the use of non-sterile solutions, like saline for disinfecting contact lenses. We report a case where delay in the diagnosis of acanthamoeba keratitis due to inadequate laboratory investigations and clinical management led to an excruciatingly painful course of the disease.
