Abstract

In this Letter, we implement a maximum-likelihood estimator to interpret optical coherence tomography (OCT) data for the first time, based on Fourier-domain OCT and a two-interface tear film model. We use the root mean square error as a figure of merit to quantify the system performance of estimating the tear film thickness. With the methodology of task-based assessment, we study the trade-off between system imaging speed (temporal resolution of the dynamics) and the precision of the estimation. Finally, the estimator is validated with a digital tear-film dynamics phantom.
