Ophthalmic and Visual Optics Laboratory

Date Published: November 20, 2014

The Ophthalmic and Visual Optics Laboratory led by Jim Schwiegerling designs and fabricates instrumentation for assessing various properties of the human eye. These devices include wavefront sensors for measuring aberrations of the eye and topographers for measuring the three-dimensional geometry of the corneal surface. The lab has developed novel retinal imaging techniques incorporating both polarimetric and spectroscopic measurement of the retinal tissue. Schwiegerling’s group is also expanding usage of these core technologies to address needs in the fields of optical design and testing, biometric identification and computational photography.
