Non-Invasive Method for Measuring Ocular Rigidity
Pr. Santiago Costantino and Dr Mark Lesk from Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont have developed a novel method and software for measuring ocular rigidity. Their non-invasive method is based on novel real-time imaging methods to assess ocular elasticity and tissue deformation. Volumetric changes of the eye due to choroidal pulsations is determined by automated choroid segmentation in sequential FD-OCT images which, in combination with intraocular pressure measurements and biometry, allow the first non-invasive and direct calculation of ocular rigidity. A 3 years clinical study with glaucoma patients is currently ongoing.
