Living Human Retina

[Two images of a retina.  On the left is a smudgy image, on the right is a much sharper image.]
Conventional Optics With AO



The main factor limiting high resolution imaging of the living human retina is blur caused by aberrations in the eye's optics. Adaptive optical techniques work well to correct the aberrations. This pair of images shows the improvement offered by adaptive optics. For more information visit the Rochester Adaptive Optics for the Human Eye home page.
