The cornea is the major refractive element of the human eye. Imaging techniques in cornea are evolving by leaps and bound every year mainly because of refractive advances. This makes it important for all the ophthalmologists to be up to date with the recent advances to give their patients the utmost outcomes. In this chapter our main focus in on knowing the recent advances in imaging in cornea.
