Founded in 2009, the Advanced Ocular Imaging Program provides an infrastructure to promote the development and use of translational ocular imaging tools to improve detection, diagnosis, and management of eye disease. While we specialize in adaptive optics retinal imaging, we employ a variety of ocular imaging tools to study the visual system. Our focus is to develop imaging tools and approaches that enable earlier detection of disease as well as more precise classification of disease – both of which provide a valuable starting point for efforts to treat eye disease.
Our program members include vision scientists, clinicians, and engineers at the Medical College of Wisconsin. In addition, we have established numerous collaborations with researchers around the world and welcome new collaborations. The AOIP serves as a local, national, and international resource for advancing the field of ocular imaging and for translating adaptive optics technology into a clinically relevant imaging tool. To this end, one of our guiding principles is open dissemination of our data and software.
Whether you are a patient seeking information about our research studies, a student looking for a summer research project, or a colleague interested in learning about our latest research advances, we hope you find our web site to be both interesting and informative.
