High resolution retinal imaging using adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscopy has the potential to dramatically alter the way patients with inherited retinal degenerations are evaluated. The lecture will demonstrate how high-resolution retinal imaging can provide insights into how cones are lost in eyes with retinal degenerations, and how these measures may provide novel, sensitive, objective outcome measures to assess experimental treatments for inherited retinal degenerations.

1. To understand challenges that have limited development of treatments for retinitis pigmentosa.
2. To understand how interpretation of adaptic optics images of the retina is facilitated by comparision with other imaging modalities.
3. To understand how high resolution retinal imaging may provide a sensitive, objective outcome measure for clinical trials of patients with retinitis pigmentosa.
