Paper Abstract

Specular reflections from the inner limiting membrane of the retina of ,llonkeys and from the posterior surface of intraocular silicone oil in patients were studied by the non-invasive technique of imaging fundus reflectometry. Small area of each reflex were measured and the compo ent of reflectance due to the reflex alone was isolated by subtracting the reflectance of a nearby reflex-free area. The reflexes are interpreted as specular reflections at a sillooth boundary between two dielectric media of differing refractive indexes. The reflectances obtained are consistent with the generally accepted refractive indexes of 1.336 for vitreous and 1.36 for retina.
