Researchers at the University of Rochester New York and Canon Inc. have developed a new adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscope (AO-SLO) to better detect retinal disease. Patients with retinal diseases can have poor fixation and ocular movements, which is challenging when attempting to obtain retinal images.

This new AO-SLO design incorporates a real-time, multi-scale stabilization system that uses a wide-field SLO with a tip/tilt mirror that compensates for gross movements, another closed-loop tip/tilt mirror in the AO-SLO to compensate for fine movements, and digital registration algorithms to remove the stabilized images.

“AO-SLO imaging measures the wavefront aberrations and corrects them using a deformable mirror,” said Dr. Mina Chung, associate professor of ophthalmology, Flaum Eye Institute, University of Rochester, NY. “The most recent designs allow for a 2-μm resolution that enables imaging of the cones at the foveal center, (and) rods can be resolved in the peripheral retina.”
