Characteristic changes within the retrolental vitreous in Stickler syndrome type 1 (STL1) have been identified with slit lamp biomicroscopy . However, imaging of the posterior vitreous has been lacking, relying only on B-scan ultrasound and time-domain optical coherence tomography (TD-OCT) [2, 3]. Herein, we report the first swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) images of the posterior vitreous anatomy in a father and son with genetically-confirmed STL1.
