The curvature of the cornea in the ophthalmology field is essential data, especially for humans when they are being tested for wearing contact lenses, or for patients undergoing refractive surgery by either knife or laser. It is extremely difficult to measure the curvature of the eye precisely because the measurement of the cornea, using a contact tool, is not possible. In this paper, we propose a method to measure the curvature using lens aberration theory and an image processing technique. We project a circular grating, known as a Placido disc, on to the cornea. The reflective image does not have equal divisions and this distortion value contains the curvature information.
