High-resolution fluorescence imaging of ocular tissues present unique opportunities as well as technical challenges for investigators whose research aims to visualize pathological changes in the cornea, lens, retina or retinal pigment epithelium. Exploiting the transparency of the vertebrate eye and innovations in ocular imaging, vision researchers and ophthalmologist have gained unprecedented insight into a wide array of ocular processes. The National Eye Institute’s Biological Imaging Core provides NEI investigators as well as those outside NEI working on vision-related projects, with a wide array of imaging systems including laser scanning confocal microscopy, multi-photon microscopy, TIRF microscopy and rodent fundus imaging. The Biological Imaging Core’s staff scientists have expertise in a wide array of ocular disease models including rodent models of laser induced choroidal neovascularization and inherited retinal degenerations.
