Abstract:The resolution of an imaging setup is ideally limited by the diffraction properties of the light and the aperture of the setup. 

However in many cases inhomogeneities in the light's propagating medium or imperfections in the optics degrade the image resolution. 

This is the case when imaging the retina in-vivo. To obtain maximal resolution, the pupil has to be dilated. This exposes more areas of the cornea and crystalline lens, which are less than perfect  

optically, resulting in ocular aberrations.   In this seminar, 

different approaches for improving the resolution of degraded images, mainly for in-vivo retinal imaging, will be presented.
