OCT images from two OMD patients with RP1L1 mutation (p.Arg45Trp, heterozygous). a OCT image of a normal control without the RP1L1 mutation (40-year-old man). All of the outer retinal structures, including ellipsoid of photoreceptor inner segment (ISe) line, cone outer segment tip (COST) line, and retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), are clearly observed both in the fovea and the peri-macular region. b A 30-year-old man. The COST line is not present over the entire macula but is present in the peri-macular regions. The ISe line is blurred at the fovea (asterisk), but clearly observed in the peri-macular regions. The RPE is normal in the entire region. c An 83-year-old man. The COST line cannot be seen in the macula but is still visible in the peri-macular region. The ISe line is disrupted at the fovea (asterisk). There is an apparent thinning of the photoreceptor layer at the fovea. The RPE is normal in the entire region
