Babies born prematurely are at risk of visual impairment and require multiple examinations to determine whether surgical intervention is required. Recently a handheld spectral domain optical coherence tomography (HH SD-OCT) device has become available that can take images to microscopic precision without event touching the eyes.

We are investigating whether imaging structures in the eyes important for sight using HH SD-OCT can improve prediction of which premature babies have the highest risk of visual impairment and guide timely surgical intervention.
