We describe optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings in a fifty-one-year-old man, who presented with amikacin-induced macular infraction, following intravitreal injection for post-operative endophthalmitis. The OCT showed macular oedema, elevation of neurosensory retina, with accumulation of hyper-reflective material underneath.

    In pediatric ophthalmology, test results may be limited by a child's ability to cooperate. Invasive and contact methods such as applanation tonometry, ultrasound biometry, and pachymetry are sometimes difficult to perform. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has become a widely used noncontact...
