Paper Abstract

Optical Coherence Tomography is a powerful tool for diagnostic imaging of the ocular posterior chamber. Recent advances in OCT technology have facilitated acquisition of high resolution volumetric images of the retina and optic nerve head. In this report, we investigate optic nerve head imaging in humans using a home-built laboratory grade OCT system in the 800nm wavelength region. We also introduce the development of a computational model of the optic nerve head morphology in order to study physiological changes which may be associated with elevated intra-ocular pressure.
