Retinal pathologies, like ARMD or glaucoma, need to be early detected, requiring imaging instruments with resolution at a cellular scale. However, in vivo retinal cells studies and early diagnoses are severely limited by the lack of resolution on eye-fundus images from classical ophthalmologic instruments. We built a 2D retina imager using Adaptive Optics to improve lateral resolution. This imager is currently used in clinical environment. We are currently developing a time domain full-field optical coherence tomograph. The first step was to conceive the images reconstruction algorithms and validation was realized on non-biological samples. Ex vivo retina are currently being imaged. The final step will consist in coupling both setups to acquire high resolution retina cross-sections.
