Biomedical Applications: Ophthalmology

Application Notes Reference
Iris detail
Corneal and scleral vessels
Showed many examples of eyes. Found that most irises had the same reflectivity in ultraviolet record but that muscle structure could be revealed as could any melanomatas. Showed that ultraviolet record could show greater detail in albino iris and that in the normal eye very high definition of scleral and conjunctival vessels could be seen. Lunnon 1974
