Nowadays medicine highly relies on non-invasive optical diagnostic methods. The likewise situation is in the case of ophthalmology, especially in diagnosis of anterior segment eye diseases, where optical coherence tomography (OCT) plays inestimable role. OCT devices can do fast, painless measurements of the anterior segment of the eye. Nonetheless it should be remembered that the OCT images are burdened with an optical distortion and they doesn’t reflect the true geometry of the eye. This study presents an algorithm for correcting the distortion in OCT images and reflecting true parameters of the anterior segment of the eye.
