Impressive AO SLO images by MERLIN

Adaptive optics correction system has been integrated in the MERLIN device. It delivers AO-SLO images that enable to observe the retina with unprecedented level of details: the cellular level.

The following images were captured on healthy eyes. On each image, the structures observed are only a few micron in size.

  • top image: individual visual cells (photoreceptor cones)
  • middle image: more individual visual cells (photoreceptor cones and rods)
  • bottom image: structure of blood vessels (artery in the corner, capillaries in the middle) as well as white cells (gunn dots).
