High resolution retinal imaging systems continue to improve in performance and to be used in an increasingly wide range of studies to investigate structures and processes in the living eye that were previously not possible. These instruments have opened up exciting new directions to study both normal and pathological vision. As part of this field, my laboratory has made extensive use of adaptive optics (AO) combined with optical coherence tomography (OCT) to achieve the resolution and sensitivity necessary to study cells in the outer retina in 3D. Here I will present our most recent investigations into (1) the waveguide properties of cone photoreceptors and (2) seeing the elusive RPE cells that lie directly behind them. I will end with a few comments about the technological advances my laboratory has made recently to make the technology more amendable for patient imaging.
