An investigation of the Laboratory of Optics, University of Murcia shows that you can use invisible infrared light to study the eye (06/03/2009)

Research conducted at the Laboratory of Optics, University of Murcia, which was published in the journal "Optics Express", has shown it is possible to use infrared light invisible to the human eye study.

In this study, by researchers Josua Enrique Fernandez and Pablo Artal, was first explored using infrared light, but by a range completely invisible to the eye, for which we used a system built by the authors to measure optical quality of the eye.

To do this, he joined a sophisticated light source based on amplified spontaneous emission and the use of fiber optics.

This light is completely invisible to people, so it could be used in ophthalmic instruments without any hassle, and also penetrates the eye and retina, including through the falls, so it can open new perspectives for use therapy.
