We have developed a prototype ocular imaging system that integrates optical-resolution photoacoustic microscopy and high-frequency ultrasound imaging. The system can perform high-resolution ocular imaging from the anterior region down to the fundus. It has successfully imaged murine eyes in vivo, including iris, lens, retina, and retinal pigment epithelium. Our results demonstrate that this system shows strong potential for the diagnosis of ophthalmic diseases.
