Abstract
In this paper, we use swept source optical coherence tomography combined with air-puff module (air-puff SS-OCT) to investigate the properties of the cornea. During OCT measurement the cornea was stimulated by short, air pulse, and corneal response was recorded. In this preliminary study, the air-puff SS-OCT instrument was applied to measure behavior of the porcine corneas under varied, well-controlled intraocular pressure conditions. Additionally, the biomechanical response of the corneal tissue before, during and after crosslinking procedure (CXL) was assessed. Air-puff swept source OCT is a promising tool to extract information about corneal behavior as well as to monitor and assess the effect of CXL.
