This review starts with a brief history and description of adaptive optics (AO) technology, followed by a showcase of the latest capabilities of AO systems for imaging the human retina and by an extensive review of the literature on clinical uses of AO. It then concludes with a discussion on future directions and guidance on usage and interpretation of images from AO systems for the eye.
