Abstract

The use of optical coherence tomography (OCT) and scanning laser polarimetry (SLP) techniques for monitoring the retinal nerve fiber layer thinning is discussed. With polarization sensitive optical coherence tomography (PS-OCT), depth-resolved birefringence measurements of the human retina can be made in vivo. A polarizing beam is used in the delay line in combination with a polarization controller to ensure that the power at both polarization states entering the delay line is equal. It is found that the spectral-domain polarization-sensitive OCT can be used to measure the retinal nerve fiber layer thickness and birefringence simultaneously.
