The cone photoreceptor mosaic of the living human eye has in a limited number of cases been imaged without the use of wavefront-correction techniques. To accomplish this, the directionality of the photoreceptors, as manifested by their waveguiding properties, may be used to advantage. In the present paper we provide a model of our recently proposed directional light scanning laser ophthalmoscope [Opt. Lett. 29, 968 (2004)] together with a detailed numerical analysis of the device. The outcome is compared with experimental results.
