The analysis of corneal topography has recently become popular, mainly as a consequence of the rapid development of refractive surgery techniques. To date, computer-assisted evaluation of photokeratoscope pictures has been the most popular method used to assess corneal topography. The processing system described previously by other authors requires hand-digitizing of the photokeratoscope pictures and therefore the constant presence of an operator for a considerable amount of time. We have…

Eye motion correction algorithm for OCT-based corneal topography.
The eye motion correction algorithm was applied to corneal topographic scans acquired using a 70 kHz spectral-domain OCT device and provided a 2-4 fold improvement in the repeatability of OCT topography and its agreement with the standard Scheimpflug topographer.

A computer-based analysis system was developed to assist in the clinical interpretation of keratoscope images, and deviations from sphericity are displayed in graphic form to aid in the recognition of abnormalities, and surface powers are presented in tabular form.
Graphic presentation of computer-analyzed keratoscope photographs.
Improvements in computer algorithms used to analyze the raw data obtained from the keratoscope photographs have been made, resulting in increased accuracy, and this system allows the ophthalmologist to see the patterns of power distribution on the corneal surface more easily than is possible by visual inspection of keratoscopic photographs.
A new photogrammetric method for quantifying corneal topography.
A quantitative photogrammetric index method that produces indices to describe corneal shape was developed and preliminary norms are offered to illustrate the usefulness of the PIM in defining groups of corneas with the same histories and in classifying individual cornea.
