Abstract

Aim: To investigate en face optical coherence tomography ( eOCT) and its use as an effective objective technique for assessing changes in the glaucomatous rat optic nerve head ( ONH) in vivo, and compare it with confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy ( cSLO).

Conclusion: eOCT appears to be effective in assessing rat ONH, allowing detailed structural analysis of the multilayered ONH structure. As far as the authors are aware, this is the first report of scleral canal expansion in a rat model. They suggest eOCT as a novel method for the detection of early changes in the ONH in glaucoma
