  • Patent number: 10932665
    Abstract: An illumination system of an ophthalmologic microscope system projects illumination light onto a patient's eye. A light receiving system guides returning light of the illumination light to an image sensor. A display controller controls a display device to display an image obtained by the image sensor. A magnification changing unit changes display magnification of the image. An interference optical system detects interference light generated from returning light of measurement light from the eye and reference light. An optical scanner is used to scan the eye with the measurement light. An OCT data generation unit processes a detection result of the interference light to generate data. A condition setting unit sets a projection condition of the measurement light in accordance with change in the display magnification. An OCT controller controls the interference optical system and/or the optical scanner based on the projection condition.

  • Publication number: 20210038076
    Abstract: A slit lamp microscope of an aspect example includes an illumination system, first photographing system, fixation system, movement mechanism, and controller. The illumination system projects slit light onto an anterior segment of a subject's eye from a first direction. The first photographing system photographs the anterior segment onto which the slit light is being projected, from a second direction different from the first direction. The fixation system outputs fixation light for fixation of the subject's eye. The movement mechanism moves the illumination system and the first photographing system. the controller performs a first control for the movement mechanism to move at least the illumination system and a second control for the first photographing system to photograph the anterior segment a plurality of times in parallel with each other while causing the fixation system to output the fixation light.
