PURPOSE To improve the ability to detect and quantify the early retinal changes associated with aging, age-related maculopathy, and age-related macular degeneration. METHODS A computational approach was implemented for analyzing images using a readily available polarimeter that is used for glaucoma diagnosis. This device, the GDx Nerve Fiber Analyzer(More)
PURPOSE To improve detection and quantification of peripapillary hyperpigmentation, associated with aging, open-angle glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration. METHODS A computational approach was implemented with a readily available polarimeter used in glaucoma diagnosis, a nerve fiber analyzer (GDx; Laser Diagnostic Technologies, San Diego, CA).(More)
Pathology beneath the highly reflective surface, such as the human retina, is key in the detection and management of disease. Advanced imaging techniques can help reveal these. Visualization and guiding the imaging to the appropriate area still remain as problems, in part due to the small scale of the pathology with respect to the potential area to be(More)
