Optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging can now be done in diverse settings, including the nursery, clinic, and operating room. Compared with imaging in adults, imaging in young children and toddlers presents unique challenges because of the patient’s smaller habitus, limited ability to comprehend directions and to cooperate, and changing axial lengths with age. Special considerations for OCT imaging must be taken for infants and children in a variety of settings. For all imaging sessions, regardless of patient age and the setting, it is important to take certain factors into consideration, as discussed below.
