Corneal Topography


Corneal Topography

We prioritize precise and comprehensive diagnostics to ensure your eye health and visual clarity. Corneal Topography is a state-of-the-art diagnostic tool we employ to meticulously map the surface of your cornea. This non-invasive procedure provides detailed and accurate information about the curvature and shape of your cornea, which is crucial for diagnosing and managing various eye conditions.

Benefits of Corneal Topography

Detecting Irregularities

Corneal irregularities, such as astigmatism or keratoconus, can significantly impact your vision. Corneal Topography precisely detects these irregularities, allowing our optometrists to prescribe the most suitable corrective lenses or recommend specialized treatments.

Custom Contact Lens Fittings

For contact lens wearers, especially those with complex prescriptions, a precise fit is paramount. Corneal Topography helps us design custom contact lenses that match the unique curvature of your cornea, ensuring optimal comfort and visual acuity.

Pre-LASIK and Post-LASIK Evaluation

Before undergoing LASIK surgery, it’s crucial to assess the corneal shape to determine the appropriate laser settings. Corneal Topography provides detailed measurements, aiding in the planning of LASIK procedures. Additionally, it is used in post-operative evaluations to monitor the cornea’s healing process.

Monitoring Corneal Diseases

Corneal diseases, such as corneal dystrophies or infections, require careful monitoring. Corneal Topography allows us to track changes in the cornea’s shape, aiding in disease management and ensuring timely interventions when necessary.

Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) Fittings

Ortho-K lenses reshape the cornea overnight, providing clear vision during the day without the need for glasses or contact lenses. Corneal Topography is essential for designing Ortho-K lenses that achieve the desired corneal reshaping effect, allowing for effective myopia control.

Enhanced Precision in Refractive Surgeries

For refractive surgeries like PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy) or Intacs insertion, accurate corneal measurements are vital. Corneal Topography aids in precise surgical planning, ensuring optimal outcomes for patients seeking vision correction procedures.

Non-Invasive and Painless

Corneal Topography is a non-invasive and painless procedure. Patients simply look into the device, and the technology quickly captures detailed images of the cornea. There are no discomfort or side effects associated with the process.
