Diagnosis of Ocular Surface Lesions Using Ultra–High-Resolution Optical Coherence Tomography

Purpose: To assess the use of ultra–high-resolution (UHR) optical coherence tomography (OCT) in the diagnosis of ocular surface lesions. Design: Prospective, noncomparative, interventional case series. Participants: Fifty-four eyes of 53 consecutive patients with biopsy-proven ocular surface lesions: 8 primary acquired melanosis lesions, 5 amelanotic melanoma lesions, 2 nevi, 19 ocular surface squamous neoplasia lesions, 1 histiocytosis lesion, 6 conjunctival lymphoma lesions, 2 conjunctival amyloidosis lesions, and 11 pterygia lesions. Intervention: Ultra–high-resolution OCT imaging of the ocular surface lesions. Main Outcome Measures: Clinical course and photographs, UHR OCT image, and histopathologic (Read more...)
