Structure, growth, and physiology of the cornea; contact lenses
I am currently working with various modern videokeratographs to develop applications in the field of contact lenses. Old methods of photokeratography have been plagued with many sources of error, but modern image processing techniques and the addition of video image capture has greatly improved the accuracy of present instruments. There is considerable need for corneal topography measurement in refractive surgery and for other clinical applications such as fitting contact lenses to infants, keratoconics, and those with aphakia.
