PURPOSE: We aimed to minimize the effect of ocular microfluctuations during videokeratoscopy to improve the qualitative and quantitative analysis of corneal topography. METHODS: A technique was developed to measure the tilt, displacement, and cyclotorsion in multiple videokeratographs from the same cornea. This information was used to reposition each videokeratograph according to the average position of a sample of multiple measurements. The corneal topography of 10 subjects was measured 20 times each, using videokeratoscopy. RESULTS: The root mean square error calculated from difference between single videokeratographs and the average videokeratograph decreased by an average of 24.6% for the 10 subjects' data. The standard deviation of some terms of Zernike polynomials fitted to the cornea was significantly reduced after the procedure. CONCLUSION: The method that we propose can improve the precision performance of videokeratoscopy in multiple measurements of corneal topography.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
