Abstract

The characteristics of retinal images are determined by the physics and principles of the retinal imaging process and hence the appearance of images varies in both profound and subtle ways between imaging modalities. We describe the principles of operation of the main modalities used for clinical retinal imaging, such as the fundus camera, scanning laser ophthalmoscope and optical coherence tomography and discuss the image characteristics that may inform the optimization of algorithms for retinal-image analysis.
