Paper Abstract

In this work we present an image processing software for automatic astigmatism measurements developed for a hand held keratometer. The system projects 36 light spots, from LEDs, displayed in a precise circle at the lachrymal film of the examined cornea. The displacement, the size and deformation of the reflected image of these light spots are analyzed providing the keratometry. The purpose of this research is to develop a software that performs fast and precise calculations in mainstream mobile devices. In another words, a software that can be implemented in portable computer systems, which could be of low cost and easy to handle. This project allows portability for keratometers and is a previous work for a portable corneal topographer.
