Imaging of the eye is limited by the relative poor optics of the human eye to viewing small bloodvessels at best. While biology has cellular level image resolution, ophthalmology has long suffered from the poor numerical aperture of the human eye. With the help of adaptive optics, a technology initially developed for President Reagan's Star Wars Initiative and subsequently used in astronomy, we are able to overcome the optical resolution limits and achieve cellular level imaging in humans.

I am originally from Chicago, joined the Air Force immediately upon graduation from Valparaiso University, Married my wife Jan in 1968 and we are celebrating our 50th anniversary this year.
I scuba dive, play golf, do CrossFit and recently gave up flying my own airplane. I flew mach2 in tight formation in an F104, but get nervous over a 3 foot putt.
