Boston Micromachines wins adaptive optics grant

May 2013
Boston Micromachines Corp. (BMC) has received a $1.2 million National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant to fabricate a retinal imaging system using microelectromechanical systems-based deformable mirrors for wavefront correction. The instrument, a next-generation adaptive optics scanning ophthalmoscope, was developed in collaboration with the Indiana University School of Optometry under a Phase II Competing Renewal Small Business Innovation Research grant from NIH’s National Eye Institute. It will be a quantitative tool to study eye diseases such as diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration. As part of the program, BMC will install and support the device at the Joslin Diabetes Center’s Beetham Eye Institute in Boston for an observational pilot study.
