    OCT Instrument Increases Field of View to Capture Optical Sections Matching Curvature of the Cornea

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    A team from Paris’ Langevin Institute, a joint unit consisting of researchers from the City of Paris Industrial Physics and Chemistry Higher Educational Institution (ESPCI) and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), have developed an instrument to improve the monitoring and detection of eye diseases, as well as diabetes, which changes nerve density in the cornea. The instrument increases the size of the field of view to a point where OCT images capture the curved layers of a person’s cornea with cell-level detail.

    The curved field device provides high-resolution optical sections with an area 10× larger than the clinical devices medical professionals currently use for corneal diagnostics. This…
