In this report, we demonstrate that in a coherence revival (CR) based swept source optical coherence tomography (SSOCT)
set-up, real-time cross-sectional long-range images can be produced via the Master Slave (MS) method. The total
tolerance of the MS method to nonlinear tuning, to dispersion in the interferometer and to dispersion due to the laser
cavity, makes the MS ideally suited to the practice of coherence revival. In addition, enhanced versatility is allowed by
the MS method in displaying shorter axial range images than that determined by the digital sampling of the data. This
brings an immediate improvement in the speed of displaying cross-sectional images at high rates without the need of
extra hardware such as graphics processing units or field programmable gate arrays. The long axial range of the
coherence revival regime is proven with images of the anterior segment of healthy human eye.
