Title (EN) OPHTHALMIC RANGE FINDING
(FR) TÉLÉMÉTRIE OPHTALMIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) Embodiments of the invention provide methods and systems for analyzing the ophthalmic anatomy of a patient posterior to the cornea. The method may include scanning a focus of a femtosecond laser beam along a path within the patient's eye. A portion of the path may be disposed posterior to the patient's cornea. The method may also include acquiring a first reflectance image and a second reflectance image associated with the focus disposed respectively at a first location of the path and a second location of the path. The method may further include determining the presence or absence of an ophthalmic anatomical feature of the eye based on a comparison between the first reflectance image and the second reflectance image.
(FR) La présente invention concerne, dans certains modes de réalisation, des procédés et des systèmes d'analyse de l'anatomie ophtalmique d'un patient à l'arrière de la cornée. Ledit procédé peut comprendre le balayage d'un foyer de faisceau laser femtoseconde le long d'une trajectoire à l'intérieur de l'œil du patient. Une partie de la trajectoire peut être située à l'arrière de la cornée du patient. Ledit procédé peut également comprendre l'acquisition d'une première image de réflectance et d'une seconde image de réflectance associées au foyer, placées respectivement à un premier emplacement de la trajectoire et à un second emplacement de la trajectoire. Ledit procédé peut en outre inclure la détermination de la présence ou de l'absence d'une caractéristique anatomique ophtalmique de l'œil, sur la base d'une comparaison entre la première image de réflectance et la seconde image de réflectance.
