Abstract
Recently introduced smart scanning protocols called segmented protocols offer possibility to create Spectral Optical Coherence Tomography images with strongly reduced speckle contrast. The algorithm is fast, robust and gives cross-sectional images with preserved high lateral resolution. To obtain efficient speckle reduction only slight modification to the optical setup is required. Cross-sectional images of anterior and posterior parts of the human eye with reduced speckle noise are presented.
