The Bonn Adaptive Optics and Vision Laboratory is a research lab at the University Eye Hospital in Bonn, Germany, funded by the Emmy Noether Program of the German Research Foundation.

We use adaptive optics imaging techniques to create high resolution images of the living human retina. By means of fast optical light switching and real-time compensation for retinal motion, we are able to target and stimulate individual photoreceptor cells for extremely precise visual function testing.
