Members of the AOIP frequently give interviews explaining advanced ocular imaging.  Below are videos recorded with Joseph Carroll, PhD, Judy Kim, MD, and Ben Sadjak, graduate student.  Our retinal imaging sessions produce many photoreceptor videos like the two shown at the bottom of this page.

The NEI Audacious Goals Initiative: Developing Next-Generation Tools for Imaging the Eye

Joseph Carroll, PhD, and Alfredo Dubra, PhD, discuss the importance of advanced retinal imaging to the NEI goal of restoring vision through regeneration of the retina.

Ben Sajdak featured in UW-Oshkosh alumni news video

In this video Ben reflects on the benefits of his UW-Oshkosh education and how it prepared him for a rigorous PhD program at MCW.

Ophthalmic adaptive optics installed at University College London (UCL)

AOIP members build an AOSLO at UCL. Used to examine individuals with inherited retinal degenerations, this imaging tool is a welcome addition to UCL's research program.

Joseph Carroll, PhD, explains adaptive optics

Joseph Carroll, PhD, explains how adaptive optics imaging is used to compare normal and diseased retinas.

photoreceptor movie

Retina Photoreceptor movie

A typical high resolution movie of a subject's retina recorded during an imaging session. This movie shows light reflected from a central part of the retina, called the fovea. Each bright spot in this movie corresponds to a cone photoreceptor.

Retina Photoreceptors from the fovea

Reflectance AOSLO movies from a young subject's fovea. The bright spots are cone photoreceptors. The images are sinusoidally warped along the horizontal direction and each of them subtends a field of view of approximately 1.5x1.6 degrees (HxV).
