Paper Numbering: Proceedings of SPIE follow an e-First publication model, with papers published first online and then in print. Papers are published as they are submitted and meet publication criteria. A unique citation identifier (CID) number is assigned to each article at the time of the first publication. Utilization of CIDs allows articles to be fully citable as soon as they are published online, and connects the same identifier to all online, print, and electronic versions of the publication. SPIE uses a six-digit CID article numbering system in which:

  • The first four digits correspond to the SPIE volume number.

  • The last two digits indicate publication order within the volume using a Base 36 numbering system employing both numerals and letters. These two-number sets start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B ... 0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc.

The CID Number appears on each page of the manuscript. The complete citation is used on the first page, and an abbreviated version on subsequent pages.

The papers contained in this volume were presented at the 25th conference on Ophthalmic Technologies, held 7-8 February 2015 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California, as a part of the SPIE Photonics West BiOS Meeting.

A total of 49 papers and 24 posters were presented by scientists, clinicians, and engineers from academia, private clinics, and industry representing many countries and four continents. Topics included new technology for surgical guidance using optical coherence tomography, new devices and approaches for vision assessment, applications of polarization imaging, ophthalmic tissue characterization using elastography, retinal vasculature imaging, ophthalmic image processing, and advances in adaptive optics and retinal prostheses.

This year we celebrated the 25th edition of the Ophthalmic Technologies conference with a special "Silver Anniversary" session. Jean-Marie Parel, Karen Joos, Jerry Sebag, Wolfgang Drexler and Rafat Ansari presented brief personal accounts of the conference's impact, and their vision of where ophthalmic technologies are headed. We thank the five speakers very much for providing their insights.

The anniversary session ended with a special award given to Prof. Jean-Marie Parel in recognition of his contributions to the field of ophthalmic technologies and to the conference. Prof. Parel founded the conference and chaired the first six editions.

The conference concluded with the presentation of the 15th Pascal Rol Award to Francesco LaRocca and his colleagues from Duke University for their excellent paper on "Ultracompact switchable SLO/OCT handheld probe design" (9307-50). Established in memory of Dr. Pascal O. Rol, former chair and co-founder of the Ophthalmic Technologies conference, the award is in recognition of the best manuscript and presentation. The outstanding finalists, selected by the entire program committee among 71 abstract submissions, were Daniel Palanker (9307-28), Nathan Shemonski (9307-35) and Liangbo Shen (9307-05).

We are very grateful to the Brien Holden Vision Institute in Sydney, Australia, for sponsoring the 2015 Pascal Rol award, through the Pascal Rol Foundation.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Pascal Rol lecture on the topic of clinical applications and technological needs for femtosecond laser cataract surgery, to be given by Prof. Zoltan Nagy, had to be cancelled.

We thank the Program Committee members, session chairs, speakers, and participants, as well as the SPIE staff for their support and dedication in making this conference a success.

We extend an invitation for the Ophthalmic Technologies XXVI conference, which is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, 13–14 February 2016 in San Francisco, California.

The Ophthalmic Technologies Foundation Award

Presented to

Jean-Marie Parel

Bascom Palmer Eye Institute,

University of Miami School of Medicine

Sunday February 8, 2015

Presentation of the award by Marilyn Gorsuch, Director Technical Programs, SPIE to Professor Jean-Marie Parel. From left to right: Arthur Ho, Per Soderberg, Marilyn Gorsuch, Jean-Marie Parel, Fabrice Manns.


We hereby recognize Professor Parel as a founder of the Ophthalmic Technologies Conference.

Since 1991, through his tireless leadership, guidance, and contributions, Professor Parel has been the mainstay in the foundation and growth of this unique world-leading forum. The result of Professor Parel’s invested energies are manifest in this successful annual gathering of engineers, scientists and clinicians in ophthalmology and vision research for the advancement of ophthalmic systems, improving eye care and eye research the world over. Furthermore, Professor Parel has fostered the careers of generations of scientists and engineers through his outstanding inventiveness, teaching and mentoring.

With this plaque, we express our sincere gratitude and appreciation for his dedication and seminal contribution to the Ophthalmic Technologies Conference.
