Imaging in the Aging Eye
Retinal imaging encompasses a number of techniques, all with differing goals. The main applications include characterizing the basic anatomy and physiology of the retina, understanding vision changes caused by aging or disease, discovering disease mechanisms, and providing improved care for patients with sight-threatening
disease. Since the eye offers the clearest view of living human neural tissue and blood circulation, emerging techniques use the eye as a window to the health of an individual. In recent years, modern photonics have led to advances in each of these areas, although no single
technique is optimal for all applications.
