Abstract

A spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) camera, based on a free space parallel illumination architecture and equipped with adaptive optics for retina, was developed. The camera has sufficient 3D resolution, sensivity and speed for imaging the retina at the single cell level. Camera sensivity is sufficient for observing reflections from essentially all neural layers of the retina. The camera provides the first observations of the interface between the inner and outer segments of the individual cones, resolved simultaneously in both lateral and axial dimensions.
