Title (EN) OPHTHALMOLOGICAL APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL OPHTALMOLOGIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) An ophthalmological apparatus with a digitally controllable mask for facilitating rapid and repeatable eye inspection. The mask is controlled by electronic signals to set and adjust the extent to which it blocks or transmits light from a light source. The mask is thus arranged to form an adjustable mask pattern that is projectable onto a subject's eye. An imaging device captures the mask pattern on the subject's eye. The captured images can be analysed to determine properties of the subject's eye. The mask may be controlled by a computer, tablet, smartphone or other suitable processing apparatus. Unlike conventional devices such as the slit lamp, the apparatus does not require manual adjustment of moving parts to control the shape and position of the projected pattern. The observation procedure can be fully automated such that it requires minimal user intervention.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil ophtalmologique doté d'un masque pouvant être commandé numériquement pour faciliter une inspection visuelle rapide et reproductible de l'œil. Le masque est commandé par des signaux électroniques pour définir et ajuster l'étendue à laquelle il bloque ou transmet la lumière provenant d'une source de lumière. Le masque est ainsi agencé pour former un motif de masque ajustable qui peut être projeté sur l'œil d'un sujet. Un dispositif d'imagerie capture le motif de masque sur l'œil du sujet. Les images capturées peuvent être analysées pour déterminer les propriétés de l'œil du sujet. Le masque peut être commandé par un ordinateur, une tablette, un téléphone intelligent ou un autre appareil de traitement approprié. Contrairement aux dispositifs classiques tels que la lampe à fente, l'appareil ne nécessite pas d'ajuster manuellement les parties mobiles pour commander la forme et la position du motif projeté. La procédure d'observation peut être entièrement automatisée de telle sorte qu'elle nécessite une intervention minimale de l'utilisateur.
