Highlights from ARVO 2007

During this year’s annual meeting of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO), held in Ft. Lauderdale from May 6 through 10, leading researchers and clinicians presented results they achieved using Imagine Eyes’ adaptive optics products.

The groundbreaking work performed by our customers has set the stage for future clinical applications of adaptive optics technologies in domains including ultra high-resolution retinal imaging, refractive surgery and ocular pathology management.  Read on to learn more about how professionals around the world are achieving their objectives and setting new goals in vision research and clinical practice.


Dr. R Williams from the Center for Visual Science at the University of Rochester (Rochester, NY) presented his work “New Technologies for In Vivo Imaging in the Eye - High Resolution Retinal Imaging with Adaptive Optics”

Pr. W. Drexler from the School of Optometry and Vision Sciences at Cardiff University (Cardiff, UK) presented results from his work “Pushing the Resolution Limits of In Vivo Retinal Imaging” that used our mirao 52-d Electromagnetic Deformable Mirror to enhance the resolution of his SD-OCT equipment by a factor of 20.

Paper presentations

Dr. J. Fernandez and Pr. W. Drexler presented their work “Pancorrection and ultrahigh resolution optical coherence tomography: unveiling the three-dimensional architecture of the cone mosaic in the living human retina.”

Dr. R. Montes Mico presented his findings in a presentation entitled “Does pupil miosis modify the optics of the human eye.”
