Abstract

PURPOSE
To compare the efficacy of time domain (TD) and spectral domain (SD) optical coherence tomography (OCT) in determining vitreomacular interface (VMI).
METHODS
VMIs were evaluated with TD and SD OCT images crossing the fovea horizontally in 69 eyes (mean age 52.7 +/- 15.4 years) and were classified as follows: (1) no vitreomacular separation (VMS), (2) incomplete VMS, and (3) unknown.
RESULTS
In TD OCT, no VMS was observed in 2 eyes (2.9%), incomplete VMS in 2 eyes (2.9%), and unknown in 65 eyes (94.2%). In SD OCT, no VMS was observed in 31 eyes (45.0%), incomplete VMS in 13 eyes (18.8%), and unknown in 25 eyes (36.2%). In 31 eyes with no VMS on SD OCT, 29 eyes (93.5%) presented unknown on TD OCT (p<0.0001). In 13 eyes with incomplete VMS on SD OCT, 2 eyes (15.4%) showed incomplete VMS and 11 eyes (84.6%) showed unknown on TD OCT (p<0.0001). TD OCT was also non-informative in all 25 eyes with unknown on SD OCT.
CONCLUSIONS
SD OCT allows better visualization of VMI than TD OCT, especially in patients with no VMS.
