Abstract: The Rostock Cornea Module transforms a confocal laser scanning ophthalmoscope into a corneal confocal laser scanning microscope. In this thesis, an improved version, the Rostock Cornea Module 2.0, and its achieved results were demonstrated. These include a concave contact cap design to attenuate eye movements to improve 3D volume reconstruction, an oscillating focal plane to improve mosaicking of the subbasal nerve plexus, the integration of simultaneous optical coherence tomography, multiwavelength corneal imaging, the clinical usage, and the automated morphological characterization.
