Imaging of the human eye is important in the assessment of ocular diseases. With the introduction of eye imaging at 7T comes increased signal and higher resolution visualization of the orbit and ocular structures. This work compares different single loop receive coils for in vivo eye imaging at 7T. It is shown that a small custom-built coil provides the best approach for imaging the lens and ciliary body, while slightly larger coils are best suitable for imaging of the retinal wall and retro-bulbar structures.
