Retinal and choroidal vascular imaging is a key to the better understanding and diagnosis of eye diseases. To achieve comprehensive three-dimensional capillary imaging, we used an enhanced vascular imaging technique, so called adaptive optics optical coherence angiography (AO-OCA). AO-OCA enables in vivo high-resolution and high-contrast micro-vascular imaging by detecting Doppler frequency shifts. Using this technique, the retinal and choroidal vasculatures of healthy subjects were imaged. The results show that both intensity and Doppler power images have sufficient contrast to discriminate almost all vasculatures from the static tissue. However, the choriocapillaris, pre-arterioles, and post-venules in the Sattler layer were more contrasted by the Doppler technique. In conclusion, AO-OCA enables three-dimensional capillary imaging, and is especially useful for the detection of the choriocapillaris and choroidal capillary network.
