Abstract

Handheld optical coherence tomography (OCT) makes it possible to acquire intraoperative and clinical imaging in infants and children for whom standard OCT is not possible. In patients with a retinal pathology who are left aphakic after surgery, however, image clarity is affected by insufficient refractive correction with handheld OCT. We describe a technique for supplementing the refractive power of the handheld OCT device with an aphakic contact lens to improve image clarity.
