Application of OCTA to the Iris: Relevance to Diabetic Retinopathy


OCTA is a relatively new imaging modality that is used to assess retinal vasculature without the use of intravenous dyes. It has been applied extensively in the evaluation of retinal vascular and inflammatory diseases. More recently it has been applied for the study of iris vessels in the setting of uveitis in an effort to help monitor treatment responses and identify predictors of treatment outcomes. We applied this technology to the study of diabetic retinopathy and investigated the correlation between the iris vascular fi ndings and retinopathy severity. This presentation will focus on the application of OCTA to image the iris vessels and the value of the information obtained in diabetic retinopathy patients.
