Optical Imaging | Clinical Testing | Computer Resources

Located on the Marquette University Campus, the Ocular and Computer Vision Laboratory at the Marquette University and Medical College of Wisconsin Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering provides investigators with access to state-of-the-art optical imaging equipment, psychophysical and clinical-grade testing methodologies, as well as computer facilities and software designed to support cutting-edge ocular and computer vision innovation.  


Optical Imaging

The Ocular and Computer Vision Laboratory currently houses an adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscope.  Used for fundus autofluorescence, fluorescein angiography and indocyanine green (ICG) angiography, the scanning laser ophthalmoscope facilitates functional and structural imaging of the living human retina.

 Clinical Testing

Investigators at the OCVL also receive access to a variety of psychophysical tests—such as color vision, contrast sensitivity, dark adaption and macular glare tests——as well as clinical-grade tests, through Eye Institute, Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, at the Medical College of Wisconsin.
