We would like to image your individual photoreceptors at the back of your eye!

We are looking for subjects with healthy eyes to study the arrangement of cells in the back of the eye (retina) using our novel fundus camera which allows detailed imaging of the eye (retina).
To be included in the study you need to have:
  1. Best-corrected visual acuity of 20/20. You may wear spectacles or contact lenses.
  2. No refractive error (no glasses prescription) or a glasses prescription with a low to moderate amount of sphere and/or low amount of astigmatism.

People with the following characteristics are NOT eligible: 1) history of eye injury or eye surgery including refractive surgery; and 2) cataract or other media opacity.

It typically takes up to 3 sessions to complete data collection, each session lasting 2-3 hours. If further sessions are necessary, you will be asked to continue if you agree to do so. Your eyes will be dilated using drops that are conventionally used in eye examinations. We will compensate you with $10/hour for your time and effort.

If you have any questions or wish to participate, please contact Dr. Fuensanta A. Vera-Diaz or Dr. Stacey S. Choi:
