Modern adaptive optics systems for retinal imaging represent a blend between optical design and software control. The problems faced for real-world clinical imaging include the need to obtain high quality data rapidly in less than ideal conditions, including variable size and shape moving pupils, the need to control low order aberrations of 10’s of microns while also correcting high order aberrations to RMS values on the order of 20-40 ums. In this presentation we will summarize the hardware and software approaches we have taken and present data analyzing the performance of the system.
