Abstract
We report an integrated optical coherence tomography (OCT) and reflectometry system for ophthalmology imaging. The dual-functional device provides a complementary high-resolution tear film evaluation by reflectometry and anterior segment imaging by OCT, offering a more comprehensive anterior segment examination. The imaging measurement capabilities have been demonstrated on a human eye as well as on a model eye. The minimum measured tear film thickness is 0.3 μm with measurement resolution of less than ±0.58% of film thickness yet the OCT anterior segment offers a depth resolution of 7 μm with a 45-nm bandwidth superluminescent light source at 840-nm center wavelength. The integrated system has demonstrated the capability for three-dimensional imaging in the anterior segment of the eye.
