A three-dimensional tomographic image (B) is formed which is composed of a plurality of two-dimensional tomographic images obtained by scanning an ocular fundus. A contour of a certain 2D region (M1, M2, M3, M4) in the tomographic image is determined for each tomographic image, and the volume of a certain 3D region is calculated through correcting each area of the certain 2D region defined by the determined contour or its accumulated value using an image correction coefficient in accordance with the diopter of the subjects eye. Even for subjects eyes of different diopters, the influence of the diopter correction is eliminated and a quantitative comparison of subjects eyes of different diopters is possible.


It is provided with an ophthalmic lens having a cross-sectional shape in an arbitrary meridian direction on a lens surface of the ophthalmic lens. The cross-sectional shape is expressed by the following


Image processing device (50) of the present invention comprises: an enhancement processing means (51) that enhances a speckle pattern in an ocular fundus tomographic image; a region-of-interest setting means (52) that sets a desired region in the ocular fundus tomographic image with the enhanced speckle pattern as a region-of-interest; a feature value extracting means (53) that extracts a feature value of the speckle pattern in the region-of-interest; and a disease determining means (54) that makes disease determination for an ocular fundus on the basis of the feature value. Image processing method of the present invention comprises: a step (S3) of enhancing a speckle pattern in an ocular fundus tomographic image; a step (S4) of setting a desired region in the ocular fundus tomographic image with the enhanced speckle pattern as a region-of-interest; a step (S5) of extracting a feature value of the speckle pattern in the region-of-interest; and a step (S6) of making disease determination for an ocular fundus on the basis of the feature value.

Patent
Kowa Company | Date: 2016-04-27

An intraocular lens insertion device having a configuration in such a manner that, with the displacement of a haptic toward the convex side of an optical portion, which can be deformed in a curved shape, restricted by an engaging part provided to the tip part of a plunger, the haptic is deformed in a curved shape in the direction in which the haptic approaches the optical portion. The configuration allows, when the intraocular lens is pushed out by the plunger, the haptic to enter a gap formed on the concave side of the optical portion which has been deformed in a curved shape.
