ToolBox for Zernike polynomial surface_Fitting

I have to do surface fitting with a lot of measured data to Zernike polynomial surface. I think I have to install Toolbox to code this program. Let me know which toolboxes I have to buy.
(1) Symbolic Math Toolbox (2) Curve Fitting Toolbox (3) Optimization Toolbox
If Curve Fitting Toolbox just supports built-in function such as spline fitting, I think it's not useful to accomplish our object. Then, is the Optimization Toolbox more useful?
Please advise me for this.
Sincerely yours, Ryu

You can find tools for evaluation of Zernike polynomials on the file exchange, here:
That one claims to evaluate them, although it does not appear to perform modeling with them.
This next link claims to be able to estimate Zernike polynomials:
Then I find this link for code which claims fast computation of radial Zernike polynomials:
I found some more code posted on Google groups (the old CSSM group)
None of the tools listed above claimed to require any special toolboxes that I saw, and did not even require a new MATLAB release.
Were I to recommend any specific toolbox, I might consider the optimization toolbox, but first you would need to look clearly at what those tools provide.
