Abstract

We have demonstrated a dual-channel multiplexing spectral-domain optical-coherence tomography (SD-OCT) system based on a 3×3 fiber coupler for extended imaging range of whole human eye depth, with a single light source and spectrometer. OCT images of anterior segments of a human eye were sequentially performed and constructed to demonstrate an extended depth range as large as 15 mm in air. A good quality OCT image of the whole anterior segment of an eye was present. Furthermore, whole eye segmental imaging was performed and ocular distances were calculated to show the validation of the system for whole eye morphological measurement.
