    Simultaneous Estimation of Corneal Topography, Pachymetry, and Curvature

    dentification of objective criteria to correctly diagnose ectatic diseases of the cornea or to detect early stages of corneal ectasia is of great interest in ophthalmology and optometry. Metrics for diagnosis typically employed are curvature maps (axial/sagittal, tangential); elevation map of the anterior surface of the cornea with respect to a reference sphere; and pachymetry (thickness) map of the cornea. We present evidence that currently used curvature maps do not represent the actual curvatures (principal or mean) in a human cornea. A novel contribution of this paper is the computation of the true mean curvature over every point of ...
