Title
(EN) Method for judging changes in images of the eye or its component parts
Abstract
(EN)

The invention includes a computer-implemented method, system, and computer-readable medium having computer-executable modules for judging changes in components of an eye. The inventive computer-implemented method includes the steps of acquiring, displaying, and superimposing at least two digital images of the components of the eye. The method further includes the step of processing at least one of the digital images such that the superimposed images may be compared, and the step of flickering among the superimposed digital images. The step of acquiring the images may include the step of converting a photographic representation of the components of the eye to the digital image. The step of processing may include registering, warping, and/or aligning the digital images.
