Retinal Blood Flow Visualization by Means of Laser Speckle
- 207 Downloads
Lasers have already found several diagnostic applications in ophthalmology. For example, the techniques of laser Doppler anemometry  have been used to measure retinal blood flow [2,3] and optic nerve-head compliance  , and the possibility of measuring eye dilatation by means of laser interferometry is presently under investigation [5, 6]. The properties of laser speckle  have also been exploited, in the measurement of eye refraction [8, 9].
