Abstract

We have constructed a parallel optical coherence tomographic (OCT) system that is designed to work with adaptive optics (AO) for imaging single cells in the living human retina. The high-axial resolution of OCT combined with the high-transverse resolution of AO provides a powerful imaging tool whose image quality can surpass either methodology performing alone. 3-D reconstructions were obtained of a stack of cover slips and in vitro bovine retina. Reconstructions of the bovine retina contained sufficient sensitivity to reveal clear stratification of several retinal and choroidal layers, and arrangement of individual blood vessels. The results suggest that an OCT-AO camera should substantially improve our ability to detect single cells in the retina over the current state-of-the-art AO retina cameras.
