Quantitative evaluation of optical properties of choroid and sclera are performed by multifunctional optical coherence
tomography. Five normal eyes, five glaucoma eyes and one choroidal atrophy eye are examined. The refractive error was
found to be correlated with choroidal birefringence, polarization uniformity, and flow in addition to scleral birefringence
among normal eyes. The significant differences were observed between the normal and the glaucoma eyes, as for
choroidal polarization uniformity, flow and scleral birefringence. An automatic segmentation algorithm of retinal
pigment epithelium and chorioscleral interface based on multifunctional signals is also presented.
