Abstract

The performance of spectral-domain optical coherance tomography (SD-OCT) was determined by measuring the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), and the coherence length on a mirror and in the eye. It was found that SD-OCT gained preference for ultrahigh-resolution opthalmic imaging, as source bandwidth did not affect the SNR performance of the SD-OCT configuration. The new system enabled the view of two layers at the location of retinal pigmented epithelium and showed small features in the inner and outer plexiform layers, believed to be blood vessels.
