Paper Abstract

Real-time confocal scanning microscopy has many desirable features. Living specimens which are moving rapidly can only be imaged with a real-time confocal microscope. A new real- time, scanning slit, confocal microscope designed for the clinical in vivo examination of the human cornea and anterior segment is described. The key feature of the in vivo confocal microscope is the use of two conjugate adjustable slits, and a two-sided oscillating mirror which is used both for scanning and for descanning.
