Abstract

A modified Hartmann test is proposed for measuring corneal topography. The plane screen with holes used in the typical Hartmann test is replaced with a curved object surface. This object surface yields a plane image for a spherical mirror surface. We show that the object surface is an oval of revolution that can be modeled by an ellipsoid. The plane image will be formed by a square array of circular spots, all with the same diameter. To obtain the square array in the image, we calculated the spatial distribution of the spots on the object surface.
