Abstract: Autofluorescence imaging is a rapid, noninvasive technique, with several applications becoming slowly integrated into ophthalmic clinical practice. We describe its use as a valuable tool for predicting the function of the retinal pigment epithelium following damage from blunt ocular trauma.
