ABSTRACT
The article discusses aspects of a reflective scanning ophthalmoscope that clears images rods in the human eye. The device has comprised of four off-axis afocal telescopes formed by pairs of spherical mirrors in a nonplanar system that includes an adaptive-optics (AO) deformable mirror. The device was also tested on a human subject by a team of researchers that notes the light-sensitive cells called cones located at the middle of the retina that provide high visual resolution and color vision.
