OCT Purkinje-like method for lens tilt and decentration measurements, published in Optical Engineering


Measurement of tilt and decentration of implanted intraocular lenses (IOL) is important to assess surgical outcomes. We present and validate a method that joints the advantages of OCT and Purkinje imaging to measure IOL alignment in vivo. The tomographic nature of OCT allows unequivocal identification of the anterior cornea and anterior and posterior IOL reflections in en face OCT images. The online advanced publication is available. On print, it will be part of the Special Issue on Human Vision, to be publised by Optical Engineering in June 2014
