- Adaptive Optics Technology for High-Resolution Retinal Imaging

The optical system of the human eye consists of three main components, i.e., the cornea, the crystalline lens and the iris. The iris controls the amount of light coming into the retina by regulating the diameter of the pupil. Therefore, the pupil of the eye acts as the aperture of the system. The optical axis of the eye (dotted grey line) is defined as the line joining the centers of curvature of all the optical surfaces. However, the appropriate and convenient axis that should be used for describing the optical system of the eye is the line of sight (dashed black line), which is defined as the ray that passes through the center of the entrance pupil and strikes the center of the fovea (i.e., the foveola).
