Abstract

A custom imaging Mueller matrix retinal polarimeter (the GDx-MM) is built. Mueller matrix images of normal human fovea were acquired with the GDx-MM over a 9°field at 780nm and have been analyzed for depolarization index and the variation of degree of polarization with incident polarization state. The degree of polarization (DoP) was often above 50% and varied in complex ways as a function of the incident polarization states. The depolarization properties around the macula loosely correlated with the retardance image. High spatial frequency depolarizing structures were evident throughout the fovea.
