Joseph Zelvin, Sven Erik Bursell: Retinal imaging system. Joslin Diabetes Center, Fish & Richardson P C, March 4, 2008: US07338167 (22 worldwide citation)

A retinal imaging system includes a light source and optics which receive light from the light source and which transmit the light to produce a beam that is substantially convergent. The beam penetrates a lens of an eye and diverges following penetration of the lens to illuminate an area of a retina ...
