Paper Abstract

Two deformable mirrors (2DM) were used in an adaptive optics - optical coherence tomography (AO-OCT) system to image in vivo microscopic retinal structures of healthy and diseased retinas. As a result, multiple morphological structures not previously seen in vivo have been visualized. Among those presented are three-dimensional representations of the fovea and optic nerve head (ONH), revealing cellular structures and micro-vasculature. Drusen in macular degeneration and photoreceptor dystrophies are also presented. Different methods for displaying volumetric AO-OCT data to facilitate visualization of certain morphological details are compared.
