We present what is to our knowledge the first observation of a diffusing-wave-spectroscopy signal recorded in-vivo on the ocular fundus. A modified ophthalmic microscope was developed which can acquire diffusing-wave-spectroscopy signal from the eye fundus. The diffusing-wave- spectroscopy signal was recorded in-vivo on a rabbit eye during transpupillary thermotherapy. Experimental results show the ability of the system to detect motion of the scattering sites in the ocular fundus layers during laser thermal heating.
