PURPOSE To further define the origin of the "outer red line" (ORL) present in retinal optical coherence tomograms. DESIGN Laboratory investigation. METHODS Eleven formalin-fixed caps of seven human eyes previously enucleated for choroidal melanoma at the Wilmer Eye Institute were studied. The ORL evaluation consisted of sequential, surgical elimination of the retinal pigment epithelium, Bruch's membrane (BM), and choroid in separate, but adjacent, areas. Optical coherence tomography (OCT… CONTINUE READING
