Abstract A system and method for correcting corneal irregularities through reshaping of an eye's cornea to provide a desired corrective corneal curvature. A preferred embodiment of the invention includes a topography device for mapping in detail the irregularities and surface deviations of a cornea, an interface system for receiving and manipulating topographical data and for providing directions to a laser system or the like to carry out a predetermined ablation profile on a substrate such as a corneal stroma and for providing a variety of actual and simulated pre and post operative visual depictions.
