Eye screen

The eye screen characterises all incoming mice with respect to their vision, understanding the eye as an own complex sense organ.

Primary Screen

  • Scheimpflug Imaging – examination of the anterior part of the eye (cornea and lens)

  • Optical Coherence Tomography – investigation of the posterior part of the eye (fundus and retinal layers)

  • Laser Interference Biometry – determination of axial length (distance between cornea and retina)

  • Virtual vision test – functional analysis of the visual system

Secondary Screen - (5 – 15 mice per group and sex)

  • Electroretinography – testing of retinal function
  • Histology – morphological analysis of eye sections
