Reflectometry with a scanning laser ophthalmoscope

Abstract

We describe noninvasive techniques to optimize reflectometry measurements, particularly retinal densitometry, which measures the photopigment density difference. With these techniques unwanted scattered light is greatly reduced, and the retina is visualized during measurements. Thus results may be compared for each retinal location, and visible artifacts are minimized. The density difference measurements of the cone photopigment depend on the optical configuration of the apparatus. The cone photopigment density difference is greatest near the fovea and for most observers decreases rapidly with eccentricity. A research version for reflectometry and psychophysics of the scanning laser ophthalmoscope is described.
