Scanning laser ophthalmoscopy is a method of examination of the eye. It uses the technique of confocal laser scanning microscopy for diagnostic imaging of retina or cornea of the human eye.

It is helpful in the diagnosis of glaucoma, macular degeneration, and other retinal disorders.

It has been combined with adaptive optics technology to provide sharper images of the retina.[1][2]
