Abstract
Phase retardation of in vivo human retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) is quantitatively measured by two methods—polarization-sensitive spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (PS-SD-OCT) and scanning laser polarimetry (SLP). An en face cumulative phase retardation map is calculated from the three-dimensional (3-D) phase retardation volume of healthy and glaucomatous eyes measured by PS-SD-OCT. It is shown that the phase retardation curves around the optic nerve head measured by PS-SD-OCT and SLP have similar values except near the retinal blood vessels. PS-SD-OCT can measure the cumulative phase retardation of RNFL as well as SLP, which will allow the evaluation of RNFL for glaucomatous eyes.
