  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We studied the anterior ocular segment of 5 normal eyes by optical coherence tomography (OCT). It clearly showed the cornea, iris, sclera, bulbar conjunctiva and the corneal limbus and not the ciliary body, scleral spur or the canal of Schlemm. Measurement of the thickness of the central and limbal cornea in four directions gave 3.0% as the coefficient of variation. OCT was also useful in observing the filtering bleb and scleral fissure after filtering glaucoma surgery.
