    2. Cellular-scale evaluation of induced photoreceptor degeneration in the living primate eye

      Cellular-scale evaluation of induced photoreceptor degeneration in the living primate eye
      Progress is needed in developing animal models of photoreceptor degeneration and evaluating such models with longitudinal, noninvasive techniques. We employ confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy, optical coherence tomography (OCT) and high-resolution retinal imaging to noninvasively observe the retina of non-human primates with induced photoreceptor degeneration. Photoreceptors were imaged at the single-cell scale in three modalities of adaptive optics scanning light ophthalmoscopy: traditional confocal reflectance, indicative of waveguiding; a non-confocal offset aperture ...

    3. ARVO Champalimaud Award Lecture Videos By James G. Fujimoto and David R. Williams

      ARVO Champalimaud Award Lecture Videos By James G. Fujimoto and David R. Williams
      The 2012 Antnio Champalimaud Vision Award recognized the development of two novel approaches to visualising the living human retina in health and disease: OCT and adaptive optics. The award citation for OCT states, "Optical Coherence Tomography, or OCT, was developed by merging interferometric methodologies with insights for their clinical ocular applicantion by a multidisciplinary effort of engineers, scientists, and physicians accomplished by James Fujimoto, Eric Swanson, David Huang, Carmen Puliafito ...

      €1 million Champalimaud Award recognises novel approaches to imaging the eye
      The 2012 Antnio Champalimaud Vision Award has been given for the development of two novel approaches to visualising the living human retina in health and disease. These techniques have provided remarkable opportunities for studying fundamental questions of retinal structure, for unravelling the mechanisms of human ocular disease, and for better monitoring clinical outcomes. Optical coherence tomography, or OCT, was developed by merging the low coherence interferometry methodologies of James Fujimoto ...

      Puliafito honored with international Vision Award in Portugal
      Keck School of Medicine of USC Dean Carmen A. Puliafito received the 2012 Antnio Champalimaud Vision Award today for the invention and development of optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging technology that has revolutionized the practice of ophthalmology by dramatically improving the ability of clinicians to diagnose and treat such blinding diseases as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma. Puliafito accepted the award in Lisbon, Portugal, during a ceremony held at ...

    8. Imaging and Measurement in the Eye: Now and Ahead

      Imaging and Measurement in the Eye: Now and Ahead
      Nearly all the eye's structures, from the retina at the back of the eye to the tear film at the front, can now be imaged and measured in vivo with outstanding resolution and precision. Imaging and measurement of the eye is fundamental to both research and clinical practice in optometry, and the technologies to do this have mushroomed exponentially in recent decades. The capabilities of these current imaging technologies ...

    9. Method and apparatus for improving vision and the resolution of retinal images

      A method of and apparatus for improving vision and the resolution of retinal images is described in which a point source produced on the retina of a living eye by a laser beam is reflected from the retina and received at a lenslet array of a Hartmann-Shack wavefront sensor such that each of the lenslets in the lenslet array forms an aerial image of the retinal point source on a ...
