The tomographic image capturing device of the present invention is configured to: split light from a light source (11) into measurement light and reference light; cause the measurement light and the reference light to be incident to an object (E) and a reference object (49), respectively; and capture tomographic images of the object (E) on the basis of interference light generated by superposition of the measurement light reflected from the object (E) and the reference light reflected from the reference object (49). The tomographic image capturing device has a first image capturing mode and a second image capturing mode. The first and second image capturing modes are each a mode in which the measurement light is two-dimensionally scanned to be incident to the object (E) and the tomographic images of the object (E) are captured. The two-dimensional scans in the second image capturing mode require a shorter time than that required for the two-dimensional scans in the first image capturing mode. The capturing of the tomographic images in the first image capturing mode is performed after performing adjustment of an image capturing condition necessary for capturing the tomographic images in the first image capturing mode. The adjustment is based on the tomographic images captured in the second image capturing mode.

A measurement optical system (30) is provided which causes measurement light split by a beam splitter (20) to be incident to an object, and a reference optical system (40) is provided which causes reference light split by the beam splitter to be incident to a reference mirror (49). A tomographic image of the object is formed on the basis of interference light generated by superposition of the measurement light reflected at the object to return and the reference light reflected at the reference object to return. Optical components such as lenses and mirrors that constitute the measurement optical system and reference optical system correspond to each other, and the wavelength dispersion characteristics of the optical components in the correspondence relationship are identical or equivalent.

The adjustment is based on the tomographic images captured in the second image capturing mode.


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.

The tomographic image capturing device of the present invention comprises a display means (18) configured to: split light from a light source (11) into measurement light and reference light and cause the measurement light and the reference light to be incident to an object (E) and a reference object (49), respectively; capture tomographic images of the object (E) on the basis of interference light generated by superposition of the measurement light reflected from the object (E) and the reference light reflected from the reference object (49); and display tomographic pictures of the object generated on the basis of the captured tomographic images. The tomographic image capturing device has a first image capturing mode and a second image capturing mode. The first image capturing mode is a mode in which the measurement light is two-dimensionally scanned by raster scan to be incident to the object (E) and the tomographic images of the object (E) are captured. The second image capturing mode is a mode in which the measurement light is two-dimensionally scanned by raster scan to be incident to the object (E) and the tomographic images of the object (E) are captured. The raster scan in the second image capturing mode is thinned from the raster scan in the first image capturing mode. The display means (18) is configured to be switchable between a first display mode and a second display mode. The first display mode is a mode in which a plurality of tomographic pictures including a region of interest of the object (E) is selected from among the tomographic pictures generated on the basis of the tomographic images captured in the second image capturing mode and only the selected plurality of tomographic pictures is displayed. The second display mode is a mode in which all of the tomographic pictures generated on the basis of the tomographic images captured in the second image capturing mode are in turn displayed. The capturing of the tomographic images in the first image capturing mode is performed after separately performing a first adjustment operation and a second adjustment operation for adjustment of an image capturing condition necessary for capturing the tomographic images in the first image capturing mode. The first adjustment operation is based on the tomographic pictures displayed in the first display mode. The second adjustment operation is based on the tomographic pictures displayed in the second display mode.

In the present invention, an edge face of an diaphragm ring (4) has a part (a locked portion) wherein a plurality of depressions (62) are formed and a substantially flat surface wherein no depression (62) is formed, and by a simple operation of operating a link releaser (52) so as to rotate the diaphragm ring (4), it is possible to switch between a click mode and a non-click mode. When taking still images, a diaphragm value can be fixed by using the click mode, and when video is taken, the diaphragm value can be smoothly changed during imaging by using the non-click mode.
