Professor of Optometry and Vision Science Martin Banks on Biomedical Optics.

Biomedical optics is a fast-growing area of vision science. It has many facets including how best to correct refractive error or other optical defects and thereby improve a person’s vision, how to model and visualize optical structures in the eye such as the cornea and crystalline lens, and how to image fine detail in the retina to answer basic science questions and diagnose retinal disease. It also includes the developmental and evaluation of optical systems for the presentation of 3-dimensional information in various displays such as mobile devices and head-mounted virtual-reality setups.
