An ophthalmic device is configured to examine at least two eye characteristics including intraocular pressure, and the ophthalmic device includes: an examination optical system configured to obtain examination information of a subjects eye when the at least two eye characteristics of the subjects eye are examined; and an examination window configured to switch. examinations of the at least two eye characteristics. The examination optical system is arranged outside of the examination window. The examination window is capable of rotating independently of the examination optical system. The examinations of the at least two eye characteristics are switched by rotation of the examination window.

An ophthalmological device emits light from a measurement optical system to an eye (100) to be examined and calculates a dimension along the eye axis of a target portion of the eye (100) from interfering light composed of reflected light from the eye (100) and reference light. The measurement optical system includes incidence a position changing member that changes the incidence position of light emitted to the eye (100), and a driving unit that drives the incidence position changing member so as to scan at the incidence position of emitted light in a predetermined region of the eye (100). The predetermined region is a region where a straight line passes through when the straight line radially extended from the cornea apex (110) of the eye (100) is circumferentially moved over a predetermined angle range in the case of the eye (100) is viewed from the front.

An ophthalmological device calculates a cornea surface shape of an eye to be examined. The ophthalmological device includes a ring image photographic optical system configured to radiate a plurality of concentric ring light to the cornea surface of the eye and take reflected images of the plurality of ring light reflected from the cornea surface of the eye, an interference optical system configured to radiate measurement light to the eye and detect interfering light composed of reflected light of the measurement light reflected from the eye and predetermined reference light. The shape of the cornea anterior surface of the eye is calculated form the reflected images of the plurality of ring light, the thicknesses of the cornea of the eye at the plurality of incident positions is calculated from the interfering light, and the posterior surface shape of the cornea of the eye is calculated based on these two results.

An ophthalmic device capable of obtaining B-scan graphical images at high speed while eliminating positional displacement due to movement of a subject eye. The device includes: anterior eye image obtaining means configured to obtain an image of an anterior eye of a subject eye; eye fundus image obtaining means configured to obtain an image of an eye fundus of the subject eye; and control means configured to detect a moving distance of the subject eye in the anterior eye image using means configured to calculate correlation between a moving distance of the subject eye in the anterior eye image and a moving distance in the eye fundus image, and to control a position for imaging of the eye fundus image based on the detected moving distance of the subject eye and the calculated correlation.


There is provided a polarization-sensitive optical tomographic imaging apparatus capable of acquiring a two-dimensional or/and three-dimensional tomographic image having higher SNR and quality by cancelling phase change caused by birefringence of a sample in average processing using a predetermined kernel region, and calculating a global phase difference of each pixel in the kernel. The PS-OCT imaging apparatus includes a processing unit configured to: set a predetermined kernel to a B scan image or/and C scan image (volume data) acquired corresponding to a Jones matrix; model the Jones matrix of each pixel in the set predetermined kernel by using one or more unitary matrices to calculate a relative global phase of each pixel, which may be due to speckle noise, for instance; and cancel the calculated relative global phase in each pixel in the predetermined kernel to average each element of the Jones matrix in the predetermined kernel.
