OptosOCT SLO Combines Microperimetry with OCT, Cleared by FDA


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


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...)
