Photoreceptors

photoreceptors healthy

Imaging the light sensitive cells in a healthy living human retina. The top images are of the cones at the fovea, while the bottom images are of the peripheral retina (small cells are rods, larger cells are cones). The left panels show the images in a linear display, while the right panels show the images in a logarithmic display.

photoreceptors retinitis pigmentosa

Imaging the light sensitive cells in a patient with retinitis pigmentosa. The top images are of the cones at the fovea, while the bottom images are of the peripheral retina (small cells are rods, larger cells are cones). The dark gaps represent non-waveguiding photoreceptors.

photoreceptors cone rod dystrophy

Imaging the light sensitive cells in a patient with cone rod dystrophy. The top images are of the cones  in a healthy control, while the bottom images are of photoreceptors . The dark gaps represent non-waveguiding photoreceptors.
