Euclid Corneal Topographer (Arthur D. Little)

Euclid contracted Arthur D. Little to develop a manufacturable product around a laboratory design for their novel corneal measurement system.

The design of this system is based on an optical metrological technique of Fourier Transform Profilometry. The surface of the cornea of the eye can be measured by imaging a projection onto the surface of two off-axis grid patterns.

The system was initially a bench-top laboratory prototype. The design team at ADL broke down the bill of materials into its core components and then sourced components that could be used in a manufacturable device. The electronics were redesigned to be easily made and built into a well-designed housing. This included a dual flash lamp system with a timing mechanism controlled by an external desktop computer.
