Adaptive Optics-Based Optical Coherence Tomography

Millions of people suffer from eye diseases that degrade the retina, causing blindness. Opthalmologists observe the retina to diagnose a wide variety of blinding diseases. Conventional equipment, however, does not provide cellular-level resolution to enable the doctor to make a more accurate diagnosis.
Patent Abstract: 
This technology uses microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), adaptive optics (AO), and optical coherence tomography (OCT) to produce 3-D retina images at the cellular level. AO compensates for optical aberrations by continuously sampling images, and rapidly compensating for these aberrations via a wavefront corrector.
