We apply optical computing techniques to basic problems in computational geometry. We present an abstract computational model for optical computing and show its applicability to the efficient solution of geometric problems. Many such problems can be solved with a constant number of optical operations. We also discuss the advantage of optical computing over classical techniques in computational geometry and study issues in the design and analysis of geometric algorithms based on optical computing.
