    Computational retinal imaging via binocular coupling and indirect illumination



    The retina is a complex light-sensitive tissue that is an essential part of the human visual system. It is unique, as it can be optically observable with non-invasive methods through the eye’s transparent elements. This has inspired a long history of retinal imaging devices for examination of optical function [Van Trigt 1852; Yates 2011] and for diagnosis of many of the diseases that manifest in the retinal tissue, such as diabetic retinophathy, hypertension, HIV/AIDS related retinitis, and age-related macular degeneration. These conditions are some of leading causes of blindness, especially in the developing world, but can often be prevented if screened and diagnosed in early stages.
