Presentation Description : In common retinal pathologies such as diabetic retinopathy, 20/20 vision is often maintained. Despite good acuity, and minimal to early changes detected on clinical examination, retinal imaging using an adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscope (AOSLO) reveals extensive alterations at the cellular level. This presentation will cover retinal vascular and photoreceptor changes such as retinal vessel remodeling at the capillary level, retinal microcysts despite good acuity, changes to the light guiding properties of foveal cones, specific complaints by patients with clinically normal vision, and others in diseases ranging from neoplasms in the retina to systemic disease such as hypertension. Improved biomarkers of retinal structure and function are possible with these techniques.

This is an abstract that was submitted for the 2018 ARVO Annual Meeting, held in Honolulu, Hawaii, April 29 - May 3, 2018.
