CASE REPORT #1 High Myope Image Capture Time: 0.10 sec
The increased detection sensitivity of the 1 μm Swept Source OCT enables you to clearly visualize multiple structures throughout the OCT scanning window. In this case, you can measure the choroidal thickness as well as appreciate the full contour of the globe.
The Swept Source OCT wide angle scan shows the full relationship of the optic nerve to the rest of the retina, giving appreciation of optic nerve head elevation. The pearly substance of the optic disc drusen is captured in specific cuts.
This is a case of wet AMD with an associated pigment epithelial detachment and subretinal fluid. Intricate details of subretinal space are better seen with Swept Source OCT compared with corresponding Spectral Domain OCT. Choroidal architecture is also appreciated in more detail throughout the macula with Swept Source OCT.

CASE REPORT #4 Central Serous Chorioretinopathy Image Capture Time: 0.10 sec
This case demonstrates an increase in choroidal thickness and actual enlargement of choroidal lobules. Far temporal subretinal fluid is picked up in the 1 μm Swept Source OCT wide-angle scan. In comparison, spectral domain OCT images taken from this same patient show poor choroidal visualization and miss the collection of temporal subretinal fluid.
