Ocular wavefront tomography (OWT) is the process of using wavefront aberration maps obtained along multiple lines-of-sight (LoS) to determine the shape and position of the major refracting elements of an eye. One goal of OWT is to create a customized schematic model eye that is anatomically similar and functionally equivalent to the individual eye over a large field of view. Wavefront aberration maps along multiple lines of sight are used as design goals for configuring a generic, multi-surface model eye with aberrations that match the measurements. The model is constrained by gross anatomical dimensions and optimized to mimic the measured eye. The method is a valid, feasible, and robust method for constructing an optical model that is anatomically and functionally similar to the eye over a wide field of view.
