Abstract

Dynamic light scattering (DLS) and autofluoresence (AF) are two promising optical diagnostic techniques for use in ophthalmology. In this paper the DLS and AF are integrated in one instrument and applied to study healthy and pathological ocular tissues to detect changes at the molecular level. Measurements performed on 17 patients (age range 20-80 years) are presented. Out of these, 7 patients were healthy normals, 10 had glaucoma and the two oldest patients had both glaucoma and cataracts.
