Application of Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography in Pediatric Ophthalmology
Anterior segment OCT images of corneal changes in the pediatric population. (a) Increased stromal reflectivity (opacity) measured at 399 microns depth, residual stroma = 268 microns. Note a circular structure in the anterior chamber correspondent to a transverse section of a glaucoma drainage tube. (b) Self-sealing perforating corneal injury treated with adhesive (hyper-reflective image at the surface of the cornea with a bandage contact lens), underlying stromal thickness = 220 microns. (c) Pachymetric map in a keratoconus patient, thinnest area inferiorly colored in red (total corneal thickness inferiorly = 352 microns).
