22 December 1989 Optical Characteristics Of A Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscope
Author Affiliations +
Abstract
Scanning laser ophthalmoscopy is an opto-electronic technique to investigate the posterior segments of the human eye. Current instrumentation, which is based on a confocal optical set-up, helps to improve image formation with the given imperfections of contrast transfer through the optical system of the eye. The optical characteristics of a prototype instrument will be discussed. Applications will be presented to demonstrate the effect of focussing and confocal filtering on retinal imaging with and without presence of pathology.
