Imaging Method Reveals Long-lived Patterns in Cells of the Eye

March 21, 2019

Cells of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) form unique patterns that can be used to track changes in this important layer of tissue in the back of the eye, researchers at the National Eye Institute (NEI) have found.

NIH scientists combine technologies to view the retina in unprecedented detail
