    Novel ophthalmic imaging with adaptive optics, confocal imaging, and OCT

    A bio-optics triple-threat—a combination of adaptive optics, optical coherence tomography, and confocal microscopy—allows imaging of the human eye with unprecedented detail. It promises to enable more accurate clinical analysis for detection of diseases such as macular degeneration and glaucoma, with the ultimate goal of reducing blindness. The human eye is complex and powerful, but extremely vulnerable—far more susceptible than any other organ to ailments via blunt force, bacterial infection, and exposure. While researchers have developed numerous innovations for the detection and treatment of these conditions, there is still plenty of opportunity to enhance ophthalmic diagnostic and treatment ...
