Background and Objectives: Measurements of the cyclotorsional movement of the eye are crucial in refractive surgery procedures. The planned surgery pattern may vary substantially during an operation because of the position and eye movements of the patient. Since these factors affect the outcome of an operation, eye registration methods are applied in order to compensate for errors. While the majority of applications are based on features of the iris, we propose a registration method which uses scleral blood vessels. Unlike previous offline techniques, the proposed method is applicable during surgery.
