Optical Devices in Ophthalmology and Optometry is a highly recommended textbook that explains the physical principles of optics, photonics, metrology, and lasers, and proceeds with the design principles and instrument construction of medical devices that are most often used in diagnosis and treatment. The textbook is based on the lectures that two of the authors taught to graduate students with backgrounds in physics, electrical, and mechanical engineering. The author’s aim in their courses is… 
Design of an experimental four-camera setup for enhanced 3D surface reconstruction in microsurgery
This approach is to use a fixed four-camera setup as a front-end system to capture enhanced 3D topography of a pseudo-surgical scene and provide images for the reconstruction algorithms and generation of multiple observing stereo perspectives.
Modification of the laser triangulation method for measuring the thickness of optical layers
The obtained results can be used in ophthalmology for express diagnostics during surgical operations on the corneal layer by determining the thickness of thin films by the method of laser triangulation.
Noninvasive Quantification of Retinal Microglia Using Widefield Autofluorescence Imaging.
Widefield autofluorescence in vivo imaging of the retina in mice expressing green fluorescent protein in microglia can be used to quantify retinalMicroglia counts corresponded very well with ex vivo counts on retinal flat mounts.
Blind Source Separation of Different Retinal Pulsatile Patterns from Simultaneous Long-term Binocular Ophthalmoscopic Video-records
Two blind source separation techniques are implemented in application of an automatic detection and segmentation of a distinct Optic Disc areas with different hemodynamic properties from a simultaneous binocular video-ophthalmoscopic records to detect 3 different spatial patterns.
Blood flow mechanics and oxygen transport and delivery in the retinal microcirculation: multiscale mathematical modeling and numerical simulation
A novel mathematical and computational model describes the coupling between blood flow mechanics and oxygen transport in the retina and shows that systemic arterial blood pressure has a strong influence on the retinal circulation profiles in both blood and tissue.
Separation of Surface Hardened Glass with Non-ablation Laser Technique
The study investigated cutting of glass by non-laser ablation technique through non-linear absorption laser pulses induced optical breakdown, melting and plasma expansion throughout the glass
Surface shape evaluation with a corneal topographer based on a conical null-screen with a novel radial point distribution.
In order to measure the shape of fast convex aspherics, such as the corneal surface of the human eye, the design of a conical null-screen with a radial point distribution drawn on it in such a way that its image becomes an exact array of circular spots if the surface is perfect is proposed.
