Abstract

A common procedure for documentation of the anterior segment of the eye is taking slit-lamp photographs. To analyse these images a film has to be developed first,before density distributions or geometric quantities, e.g. curvatures of the cornea or lens can be evaluated. For immediate analysis of these quantities a new technique has been developed using a TV-camera and digital image processing methods. In order to measure the tear film thickness a white-light interference method has been used.
