Abstract

We describe a novel instrument capable of acquiring, simultaneously, adaptive optics enhanced scanning laser ophthalmoscopy and optical coherence tomography (OCT) images of the human cone mosaic in vivo. The OCT system is based on transversal scanning of the sample with a line scan rate of 14 kHz, ∼20 times faster than a previously reported instrument. We demonstrate the capability of this instrument with the measurement of the human cone spacing in perifoveal retina.
