In order to diagnose certain ocular diseases such as macular edema and atrophy, and to monitor their therapy closely, an accurate measurement of the retinal thickness is essential. We have developed a method which is capable of providing a quantitative thickness profile along a 2 mm length on the retina. A preliminary evaluation of the instrument was performed in normal human subjects. With this method, the retinal thickness can be visualized in a region extending from the optic disc to the fovea and the reproducibility of the measurement was found to be 8% (32 microns).
