Developments in adaptive optics and optical coherence tomography promise 3D imaging of microscopic retinal cellular structures that is key to the future of clinical diagnostics and research.

NISHANT MOHAN AND CICELY RATHMELL, WASATCH PHOTONICS

Adaptive optics (AO) technology is often used to correct for wavefront distortions imparted when light travels through complex optical systems, enhancing image resolution and facilitating diffraction-limited optics. It has played a particularly prominent role in ophthalmic imaging, where retinal tissue imaging is limited by inherent aberrations in the eye. Given the widespread adoption of OCT in clinical diagnostics over the last 20 years, these two techniques should be natural partners. But because of technological limitations on both sides, practical applications of AO-OCT have been...Read full article
