Faculty at the Duke Eye Center request funds to assemble an adaptive optics-enabled scanning laser ophthalmoscope and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography imager. This system provides novel high-resolution imaging capabilities to clinical and basic science investigators who are investigating vision loss and neurodegenerative diseases. It will enable them to discover and evaluate imaging biomarkers, monitor disease progression, and evaluate drug efficacy on a cellular level.
