Paper Abstract

Laser interferometry can be used to synthesize in vivo optical tomograms of the ocular tissue noninvasively. As a first example an in vivo partial coherence tomogram obtained from the optical nerve head of a human being is presented. The inherent high precision and sensitivity can make this technique into a very powerful diagnostic tool in ophthalmology.
