Paper Abstract

Dynamic light scattering (DLS) and autofluorescence (AF) are non-invasive diagnostic techniques that can monitor changes at the molecular level in ocular tissues. In the present study, we demonstrate as simultaneous measurements of autofluorescence and dynamic light scattering on the corneal tissues can be performed using a novel specifically designed instrument. The integrated instrument takes advantage of the singular techniques by improving the measurement quality and the reliability of the diagnosis. Preliminary tests on volunteers show promise in relation to possible use in the clinical practice.
