Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a promising imaging technique used by ophthalmologists to diagnose diseases. Since retinal morphology can be identified on these images, several image processing-based methods are emerging with the purpose of extracting their information. The first step to tackle any automatic method to extract pathological features from these images is delimiting retinal layers automatically. This is the aim of this paper, which presents an active contour-based method to segment layer boundaries in the retina. Results obtained by this method present high accuracy and robustness, even when some of these layers are low defined or vessel shades are present.
