Disorder in the packing geometry of the human cone mosaic is believed to help alleviate spatial aliasing effects. To characterize cone packing geometry, we gathered positions of cone inner segments at seven locations along four primary and two oblique meridians in an adult human retina. We generated statistical descriptors based on the distribution of distances and angles to Voronoi neighbors. Parameters of a compressed-jittered model were fit to the actual mosaic. Local anisotropies were… CONTINUE READING
