Abstract
Bruch’s membrane (BM) and retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) changes, thought to be the earliest signs of impending atrophy in dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD), are subtle and challenging to detect non-invasively. Here, we demonstrate imaging and quantification of BM and RPE thickness in the in vivo human eye using achromatized visible light optical coherence tomography (OCT) in normal human subjects. Our consistent visualization of BM and agreement of thickness values with ranges from prior histological studies is attributed to the increased axial resolution, and potentially also to the enhanced contrast of BM in the visible light range.
