Unique to retinal cameras, the DLO achieves its small size and low cost using a digital light projector (DLP) as the imaging source. A series of lines are rapidly projected onto the retina to simulate line scanning. Light return is spatially filtered by the electronic rolling shutter of a CMOS sensor to achieve high contrast confocal imaging.
Aeon Imaging’s DLO technology is protected by US and international patents and patents pending.
