Abstract

Purpose: : Exploring the quality of OCT images of the peripheral retina and anterior chamber angle made through a 3-mirror contactlens and a new FD-OCT device (SLSCAN1, Topcon) integrated into a slit lamp.

Methods: : Patients with representative lesions, seen in the outpatient clinic of the Academic Medical Center, were scanned through a 3-mirror-contatclens with a Fourier Domain OCT (SLSCAN1, Topcon) integrated into a common slitlamp (SLD light source, central wavelength 830 nm, bandwidth 30 nm, 1024 pixel CCD camera, scan speed 5k A-scans per second, up to 1024 A-scans per b-scan). With the SLSCAN-1, scans can be made of lesions observed during biomicrsoscopy through a handheld lens or a 3 mirror lens. A fast Z-tracking system lines out the correct length of the reference arm and compensates for the dynamic character of the examinaton. Scans of peripheral retinal lesions were both performed with a handheld lens (78D, Volk Superfield) and a 3-mirror contactlens (HAAG-STREIT). Scans of the anterior chamber angle were made through the goniomirror of the 3-mirror contactlens.

Results: : Scans of the peripheral retina obtained through a 3-mirror lens were of good quality, showing details of the different layers of the retina. The SLSCAN-1 expands the range of the scanned area of the retina compared to common commercially available OCT-devices. Scans of the anterior chamber angle, made through a 3-mirror lens, visualized iris processes and the triangular trabecular meshwork (slitlamp magnification at 40x).

Conclusions: : Good quality scans can be obtained of the peripheral retina and anterior chamber angle through a 3-mirror contact lens with the slitlamp with integrated FD-OCT (SLSCAN1, Topcon). These scans could be of clinical interest in patients with pathology in the peripheral retina or the anterior chamber angle.
