Speckle reduction in double-pass retinal images using variable-focus lenses
Rights accessOpen Access
Speckle arises in double-pass images when coherent light is scattered by the retina. Since this noise degrades the images that are used to characterize the eye, there is special attention in reducing speckle when working with instruments based on retina reflections. In this work, we present a method for speckle reduction in double-pass retinal images by producing minor periodic variations in the vergence of the beam entering the eye with a variable-focus lens during image recording. Measurements in an artificial and a real eye following the implementation of the method corroborate the speckle reduction.
