Abstract

We have developed a hand-held probe for an ophthalmic OCT system. The hand-held probe for imaging was designed to be compact and portable. The cornea and retinal images were acquired by replacing the objective lens at the front of the probe. To verify the performance of the hand-held OCT probe, we acquired two dimensional OCT image of the rat eye in vivo and reconstructed three dimensional rat eye rendering images. In vivo 3D OCT images were showed distinct structural information in the posterior and anterior chamber with minimal motion artifacts. Thereby, OCT imaging speed is suitable for an dynamic in vivo experiment.
