Paper Abstract

The first part of the paper presents the analytical curves used to approximate the corneal profile. Next, some definition of 3D surfaces curvature, like main normal sections, main radii of curvature and their orientations are given. The examples of four nonrotational 3D surfaces such as: ellipsoidal, surface based on hyperbolic cosine function, sphero-cylindrical and toroidal, approximating the corneal topography are proposed. The 3D surface and the contour plots of main radii of curvature and their orientation for four nonrotational approximation of the cornea are shown. Results of calculations are discussed from the point of view of videokeratometric images.
