New publication: AMD and High-Penetration OCT

Our new paper is now available as publish ahead of print of IOVS. This paper demonstrates the application of new OCT with 1 micrometer probe wavelength (high-penetration OCT; HP-OCT, also referred to as long probe OCT; LP-OCT) to age-related macular degeneration. 14 eyes were involved in this study, and the clinical utility of HP-OCT was discussed. Preliminary results which suggest higher robustness of HP-OCT to cataract than standard OCT were also shown. The paper is available on the journal web site (IOVS).
