Abstract (summary)

LASIK surgery is one of several ophthalmological applications requiring accurate corneal topography. The accuracy of corneal topography as measured by the videokeratoscope is no longer adequate to provide precise enough data for these applications. This work presents a process for the recovery of corneal topography using recently developed numerical methods. The process increases the accuracy of the recovered data to previously unobtainable levels.
