To show that the SS-OCT provides greater detailed visualisation compared to the SD-OCT in myopic eyes

Comparison of OCT findings in myopic eyes between the SD-OCT (Spectralis) and the SS-OCT (DRI Atlantis)
Both SS-OCT and SD-OCT were performed for 10 consecutive myopic patients. The refractive errors ranged from -2.5 to -19.5DS and axial lengths ranged from 25.96 to 35.41mm. The SS-OCT showed less image artefacts in eyes with posterior staphylomas. More vitreoretinal surface details and retinal changes eg.schisis were detected with the SS-OCT. The SS-OCT also provided more details into the choroidal thickness and the posterior scleral border was visualised in several eyes.
The SS-OCT is a new and invaluable tool in the evaluation of retinal and choroidal changes, particularly in highly myopic eyes
