Recent advances in spectral-domain optical coherence tomography SD-OCT allow for cross-sectional imaging of the retina in vivo to resolutions of 5 to 10 μm. 11 – 16 Adaptive optics AO imaging corrects for ocular aberrations and allows for direct visualization of the photoreceptor mosaic in vivo to resolutions of ≤2 μm. 17 – 20 This report presents the results of SD-OCT and AO imaging on two patients with known hydroxychloroquine retinopathy. SD-OCT Unlike time domain optical coherence tomography, SD-OCT has the resolution to detect localized thinning of the retina in the parafoveal region.
