abstract

  • Spectral-domain AS-OCT permits high resolution imaging of the keratoprosthesis device-donor cornea interface. Both the Cirrus HD-OCT and the Spectralis Anterior Segment module allowed for visualization of epithelial coverage of the device-donor cornea interface, as well as identification of physical gaps. These imaging modalities, by yielding information in regard to integration of the keratoprosthesis with surrounding corneal tissue, may help identify those at risk for keratoprosthesis-related complications, such as extrusion and endophthalmitis, and hence guide clinical management.
