Title: A METHOD FOR SELF-EXAMINATION OF AN EYE AND OPHTHALMOLOGICAL SELF-EXAMINATION APPARATUS
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for examining an eye (22) of a patient by the patient themselves by means of an ophthalmological apparatus (10), said apparatus having front optics (38) and an apparatus pupil. According to said method, the patient positions the ophthalmological apparatus (10) relative to the eye (22), a measure of the deviation of the pupil (27) of the eye (22) from the apparatus pupil is determined, and a pupil correction signal is produced depending on the measure of the deviation, said pupil correction signal specifying a direction and/or a degree of the deviation and being output to the patient. The patient can use the pupil correction signal for repositioning in relation to the ophthalmological apparatus (10) with a smaller deviation.
