Brief Summary in Lay Language

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a safe, non-invasive method for high-resolution imaging of the human retina. It uses reflection of light beams projected on the retina to calculate tomographic images.
OCT as an examination entity has been standard of care in retinal diagnostics for over 10 years. In this study, we want to test a new OCT device on top of routine OCT examination. The new OCT device uses the same basic principle, but differs in the mode of light projection and image calculation. This offers the potential for self-examination and possible future home-application of the device by the patient. Whereas established OCT devices rely on attention of a physician or a medical assistant, the new device was designed to be fully operated by the patient alone.
Aim of this study is to test the possibility of self-examination.

Brief Summary in Scientific Language

Aim of this study is to examine Full-Field-OCT as a retinal diagnostic tool in comparison to conventional SD-OCT. FF-OCT is a possible candidate for the construction of low-cost easy-to-use OCT devices that can be administered by the patient himself at home. Our study aims to test imaging quality as well as sensitivity and specificity of detection of pathological findings. We want to evaluate the reliability of OCT self-examination as well as to gather patient feedback.

Primary Outcome

Rate of successful self-measurement after prior instruction from the physician

end of 1:1-Block primary endpoint
start of 1:1-Block secondary endpoint

Secondary Outcome

Grading of OCT images of both devices. The images will be presented in a randomized order without patient identification.
- Grading of image quality
- Sensitivity and specificity in the detection of retinal pathologies, above all intraretinal fluid (IRF), subretinal fluid (SRF), pigment epithelium detachments (PED)
