Imaging the inferior oblique using optical coherence tomography

      An 81-year-old woman presented for a routine follow-up of her dry age-related macular degeneration (Fig. 1A). She had normal eye balance and no history of strabismus. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) radial scan, using Triton OCT (Topcon, Tokyo, Japan), showed a round area behind the sclera, slightly inferior to the macula in her right eye (Fig. 1B, 1C). The vertical cuts (Fig. 1D) showed its fascicular organization. The morphology and position suggest that this structure was the inferior oblique muscle. This is probably the first report on the potential of OCT to visualize the inferior oblique muscle in patients with severe chorioretinal atrophy.
