Abstract

This lecture will discuss the trials and tribulations of imaging the human eye in vivo. Specifically, Dr. Richdale will review the application of new imaging acquisition techniques such as anterior-segment optical coherence tomography (OCT) and ultra-high field magnetic resonance imaging (7T MRI) in the study of presbyopia. The importance of objective image analysis methods will be discussed -- both highlighting the application of novel image segmentation of the ciliary muscle and the need for continued development of image analysis for OCT and MRI.
