  • Patent number: 10058245
    Abstract: An optometric instrument includes an alignment device that includes light sources for sending out light beams through one or more light channels from the instrument onto the retina of an eye of a patient. The light channels are directed parallel with the visual axis of the eye at correct alignment, whereat the light beams are visible for the patient in an intended way. A method for aligning an optometric instrument includes sending out light beams from the light sources through one or more light channels onto the retina of the eye of a patient, and positioning the instrument to have the light channels parallel with the visual axis of the eye of the patient as a result of finding a position, wherein the light can be correctly viewed by the patient.

  • Patent number: 9332901
    Abstract: The ophthalmic apparatus is aligned to an eye to be examined. The apparatus is used to examine the eye. It has two or more infrared or near infrared light sources for emitting light beams and a detector sensitive to infrared or near-infrared light with the capability of detecting the light reflected from the examinee's face. It registers the examination result of the eye examined. The ophthalmic apparatus is aligned to an eye to be examined. The light beam of one infrared or near infrared light source is directed to the face. The light beam of another infrared or near infrared light source is directed to pass the examinee. The direction of the light reflected from the examinee's face is detected and the examination result and the examined eye are registered to know whether the examined eye was the right eye or the left eye.
