AOIP Facilities

Eye InstituteThe Advanced Ocular Imaging Program (AOIP) is located on the 8th floor of the Eye Institute at the Medical College of Wisconsin.  Directions and additional visitor information can be found here.


Color Vision Testing

color vision screening in the aoip Housed within the AOIP is a dedicated color vision testing suite. This space houses a variety of color vision tests including: C100, FM100, Farnsworth Panel 15, Lanthony's Desaturated D15, two Nagel Anomaloscopes, Colour Assessment and Diagnosis (CAD) color vision test, and pseudoisochromatic plates (AO-HRR, Richmond HRR 2004 edition, Dvorine, and Ishihara). We are able to provide color vision testing services for outside providers which satisfy the requirements for many occupational testing protocols.


Research Exam Lane

In addition, there is a fully-equipped research exam lane which houses Precision Vision Snellen Visual Acuity Chart, Keeler Indirect Ophthalmoscope, Zeiss SL 120 slit lamp and one datacolor CHECK II PLUS spectrophotometer.


Adaptive Optics, OCT, more

Adaptive Optics table The AOIP houses three custom-made AO imaging systems. One is an adaptive optics ophthalmoscope and the other two are adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscopes (AOSLO), for in vivo imaging of the human retina (~2µm resolution).

The AOIP also has exclusive access to the following equipment: A Zeiss IOL Master for axial length measurements, a Topcon KR 800S autorefractor, an OPKO SD-OCT w/ microperimeter, Zeiss Cirrus 5000 HD-OCT, Optovue OCT-angiography, two Bioptigen Envisu handheld SD-OCT systems, one Bioptigen tabletop SD-OCT system, a Heidelberg Spectralis OCT, Zeiss Humphrey HFA-II model 750i visual field analyzer, Haag-Streit Octopus 900 visual field analyzer (with Konica Minolta LS-150 light meter for calibration), a Zeiss Visucam Pro non-mydriatic fundus camera, an Optos California ultra-widefield fundus camera, a Diagnosys Espion ERG system with Color Dome and VEP Pattern Stimulator and a Bascom Palmer Ocular Photosensitivity Analyzer.

All labs are fully equipped with necessary optical and electronic equipment for alignment, calibration, and routine maintenance of each system.

There is an optics development lab for the design, development, repair and construction of imaging equipment; it is fully equipped with standard optical and electrical testing equipment, backup optics, mechano-optical devices, and electronic components.



AOIP graduate students reviewing adaptive optics retinal images Research subjects wait in a dedicated area, providing easy access and efficient flow for high throughput imaging.

The lab space provides significant dedicated image processing workspace as well as space for software development. There is separate office space, where we accommodate students (medical, graduate, and undergraduate), staff, and fellows. The shared office space is adjacent to the imaging labs, creating an excellent overall atmosphere for research.  A large conference room is available for weekly group meetings, seminars, and other special events.



The total dedicated research space in the AOIP exceeds 4800 ft2 . A schematic of our research space can be viewed below.
