OBJECTIVE To assess outer retinal layer maturation during late gestation and early postnatal life using optical coherence tomography and histologic examination. METHODS Thirty-nine participants 30 weeks' postmenstrual age or older were imaged using a handheld optical coherence tomography system, for a total of 102 imaging sessions. Foveal images from 16 participants (21 imaging sessions) were normal and evaluated for inner retinal excavation and the presence of outer retinal reflective bands… CONTINUE READING
