A new, real-time, flying slit confocal microscope, that has unique features and imaging characteristics for in vivo human ocular imaging is described. The use of scanning slit confocal microscopes has unique advantages over other instrumental systems based on pinhole-containing Nipkow disks (tandem-scanning confocal microscopes) for clinical in vivo confocal microscopy. The use of laser based confocal microscopy to investigate the metabolic state of biological tissues is described as a complementary technique to the reflected light imaging methods based on the flying slit confocal microscope.
