Abstract
The paper presents an approach for measurements of the corneal topography by use of lateral-shearing interferometry. In shearing interferometry the wavefront reflected from the object is split in two wavefronts. The introduction of lateral shift and superposition of the wavefronts produces interference pattern. We used phase shifting algorithm to obtain the phase differences of the wavefront reflected from the cornea. The measurements of the phase differences are carried out in two orthogonal directions. The phase of the wavefront is reconstructed by use of algorithm for the large grid based on the discrete integration. The computer-generated interferograms are used to test the procedure and to estimate its accuracy.
