First in vivo 3-D quantitative crystalline lens topography published in Biomedical Optics Express

Quantitative 3-D Optical Coherence Topography was applied to achieve the first crystalline lens shape measurements in vivo, in three dimensions. The methodology was validated on artificial eyes and and in vitro lenses, and demonstrated in vivo in young eyes. Full anterior segment OCT provides full quantification of the geometry of the ocular components of the eye (cornea and lens). The study appears in the current issue of Biomedical Optics Express.
