Algorithms used in the reconstruction of the corneal profile Having captured and digitized the reflected mire image, the corneal profile must be reconstructed. As described earlier, there are numerous difficulties in reconstructing a three-dimensional surface from a two-dimensional image but, by making certain assumptions, these difficulties may be overcome. In general, the following assumptions are made for the various reconstruction techniques: • The working distance from the target to the image is constant.

A common assumption made in some videokeratoscopes using concentric rings is that light commencing at one meridian from the object plane lies in the same meridian at the film plane. This does not apply to targets which consist of point sources, as each point can be easily located in the image plane, therefore any skewing of the image can be easily detected as the target is not continuous like a ring. Assuming that there is no meridional skew could lead to errors in the reconstruction of the corneal surface.

This classical model of the corneal contour was of a surface comprising two distinct zones - a central spherical area (known as the corneal cap) measuring 4-5 mm in diameter, and a peripheral zone that flattens progressively towards the limbus. The central zone is responsible for forming the fovea. More recently, the cornea has been described more specifically in terms of four anatomical zones (Waring 1969). These zones are the central, paracentral, peripheral, and limbal zones (Fig. 16). 16 is known as the geometric center.
