Speaker Session Topic
OCT and in vivo confocal microscopy are noninvasive imaging and diagnostic tools that enable anatomic evaluation of the cornea. OCT is typically used to image the cross-section of the cornea and can be used to evaluate the depth of cornea scars, cornea tissue loss in cases of keratolysis, the location of graft tissue after endothelial keratoplasty, as well as other indications. In vivo confocal microscopy provides morphological and quantitative analysis of corneal microstructures and is most commonly used to identify structures associated with fungal and acanthamoeba keratitis. Confocal microscopy can also be used to evaluate the corneal nerves and ocular surface.
