Diattenuation of the Human Eye at the Fovea


The human eye exhibits complicated polarization properties: birefringence, dichroism, depolarisation and diattenuation. Birefringence has been perhaps the most widely studied in the past. However, diattenuation (the relationship between the polarization of the incident beam and the transmittance through the eye) may also play an important role in ophthalmic instruments and techniques. We propose a procedure to estimate the diattenuation of the human eye in the fovea by means of a polarimetric technique.
