Paper Abstract

The purpose of this study was to measure the average shape and variability of human corneas and to develop a tool for analyzing, height, curvature, and aberrations based on a conic section model. Fresh Eye Bank Eyes were placed in Dextran until the corneal thickness reached a physiological value. The eyes were placed in a custom made holder and measured using an intraoperative PAR Corneal Topography System (CTS) mounted on an operation microscope. Topography was measured before and after removal of the epithelium. A series of MATLAB functions were written to analyze the raw-z (height) data in polar coordinates. The functions fit conic sections to the PAR CTS data along hemi-meridians at 5 degree(s) intervals. The conic shape factor and apical radius were used to calculate and display the curvature. The dependence of these parameters with meridional position was examined.
