OptosOCT SLO Combines Microperimetry with OCT, Cleared by FDA

OptosOCT-SLO-side

Optos plc (Dunfermline, Scotland) won 510(k) clearance from the FDA for the microperimetry functions on its OptosOCT SLO system. Microperimetry is a technique that analyzes retina’s sensitivity to light and the system superimposes that over OCT (optical coherence tomography) imaging to provide a map of the correlation between physical struct (Read more...)

Holography Stimulates Optogenetically Photosensitized Retinal Nerve Cells to Restore Vision

holographic-vision

Newly developed light sensitive proteins, genetically introduced into retinal nerve cells, may lead to the ability to restore vision in the blind. One challenge in developing a real-world system is that these protein activated neurons require a high energy light source for them to send electrical signals to the brain. Moreover, this light source n (Read more...)
