In this paper, we report the use of phase stabilized swept source optical coherence tomography (PhSSSOCT) for the measurement of surface mechanical wave propagation in ocular tissue in-situ. Mechanical wave propagation was measured in the mouse cornea for both young and older mice to assess tissue properties as a function of age. The measurements were performed by inducing low amplitude (< 100 μm) waves and measuring the wave attenuation at spatially distributed points using a phase-sensitive analysis of OCT signals. Obtained results indicate that the attenuation of the wave amplitude was 0.27 μm/mm in the one month-old mouse cornea and 0.37 μm/mm for 9 month old mice (and presumably of different stiffness for 1 month and 9 months old). Results also suggest that PhS-SSOCT is capable of measuring the changes in the wave amplitude as small as 0.03 μm (limited by the phase stability of the system) that allowed the measurements with a very low amplitude excitation wave, thus making the method minimally invasive. Therefore, this method could potentially be used to assess tissue biomechanical properties and to reconstruct stiffness maps of the cornea.
