New Technique Allows for Live Retinal Cell Imaging

Researchers at the National Eye Institute in the U.S. have developed a retinal imaging technique that reveals live neurons, blood vessels, and epithelial cells within the retina. The method involves combining adaptive optics and angiography, and allows the researchers to view complex units of cells that interact in the outer edge of the retina. As (Read more...)
