In order to improve the quality of retinal image,
an adaptive optics (AO) system with a liquid crystal (LC) spatial light modulator (SLM) and its application on the spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) is described. The AO system uses LC SLM as the corrector to compensate large ocular aberrations of the subject’s eye, and was combined with the retinal imaging OCT.
Based on this system, a clear retinal image with high lateral resolution was obtained.
The result suggests that LC SLM can effectively correct the wavefront error of eye, and the LC based AO has potentially application on the OCT system for retinal imaging.
