Research in retinal degenerative diseases, developments of new therapies, as well as clinical trials require precise information on pathological changes occurring at the level of retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) cells.
A team of researchers and engineers at Paris’ Institute of Vision and Imagine Eyes experimented a new technique for imaging individual RPE cells.
To do so, they modified a commercial adaptive optics retinal camera (rtx1™) and examined the retinas of healthy volunteers. As a result, they acquired images of the RPE mosaic with short exposure times, and analyzed the spatial distribution of these cells across the macula.
