Morphology of Trabeculectomy Filtering Blebs using Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography: A Comparison of Two Methods

Rita Pinto Proença, Joana Ferreira, João Paulo Cunha

Abstract

Anterior segment imaging optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) can be a useful aid in glaucoma surgery. Recent studies have shown its importance in both the preoperative morphologic evaluation of glaucoma patients as well as postoperative evaluation of filtering bleb functionality. Our purpose is to evaluate posttrabeculectomy filtering and non-filtering bleb characteristics in both time-domain OCT (TD-OCT, Visant™, Carl Zeiss) and spectral-domain OCT (SD-OCT, Heidelberg Spectralis ® anterior segment module), assess the usefulness of AS-OCT in evaluating postoperative filtering bleb function and compare both methods results.
