Written by pioneers in the field, this groundbreaking resource gives you full details on state-of-the-art 2D and 3D eye imaging and modeling techniques that are paving the way to breakthrough clinical applications in eye health. It's the first book to explore in depth a new generation of computational methods that combine image processing, simulation, and statistical discrimination tools in efforts to improve early detection of cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, iridocyclitis, corneal haze, maculopathy, and other visual impairments and conditions. Supported by 250 illustrations, this comprehensive volume presents the essentials of the human eye, eye imaging systems, and imaging optics. You discover latest advances in computer-based detection and identification of various eye conditions, including issues involving automatic retinal image registration, computer-based optic disc localization, and contour detection using ellipse fitting and wavelet transform. The book explains various infra-red and bio-heat analysis methods, including 2D and 3D ocular surface temperature profiles produced by FEM simulation of the eye structure. This unique volume examines corneal surface temperature with contact lens wear, boundary element modeling of heat transfer in the eye, and the role of aqueous humor hydrodynamics in human eye heat transfer. Moreover, you find chapters that explore age factors, temperature measurement during silicone hydrogel lens wear, and IR imaging.
