X-linked retinitis pigmentosa vs choroideremia. Fluorescein angiography reveals diffuse atrophy of the choriocapillaris and RPE with sparing of the central macula. Images were captured using Optos T200x.

It is estimated that globally 285 million people are visually impaired, 246 million people have low vision and 39 million are blind. I thought that combining the visual language of a mid-phase fluorescein angiogram of a retina and the world map would be highlight the issues of global sight loss.

“Sparkling corneal fireworks”: A montage composed of confocal microscopy images of cold thermoreceptors from a living mouse whole cornea. The image was taken from a transgenic mouse expressing EYFP in corneal nerve fibers under the control of TRPM8 regulatory sequences (Trpm8-EYFP mouse). For montage purposes, we used the image at different pseudo-colors and sizes.

Structure and function of photoreceptors in the living macaque eye - The near-infrared reflectance image (left) mainly contains structural information of photoreceptor mosaic, whereas the corresponding two-photon excitation fluorescence image (right) interrogates visual cycle activity. The main source of fluorescence is most likely retinol. The visual cycle of one cone photoreceptor appears to be compromised, manifesting in diminished fluorescence. 135µm x 180µm
