Duke University researchers have developed a handheld probe that can image individual photoreceptors in the eyes of infants.

The technology, based on adaptive optics, will make it easier for physicians and scientists to observe these cells to diagnosis eye diseases and make early detection of brain-related diseases and trauma.
