Abstract

Adaptive optics flood-illuminated imaging technology has been successfully used to correct the wavefront aberration of human eyes to obtain high-resolution retinal images. However, because of the pollution of various types of noise and the degradation caused by residual aberration, the noisy images are not very clear and weak edges are difficult to discern. To reveal the abundant detail hidden by large-scale noise and to enhance low-contrast edges, a hybrid filtering and enhancment method is proposed combining bilateral filtering, coherence diffusion, and edge enhancement. Results show that it is effective to improve the visual quality of retinal cell images.
