A healthy cornea is essential for good vision. It focuses entering light onto the lens while filtering out some of the most damaging wavelengths of sunlight. The cornea also assists in shielding the eye from germs, dust, and other harmful matter. For all these reasons, it’s essential to check and monitor your corneal health.
By using and advanced computer-assisted technology, which is known as corneal topography, our office can obtain precise digital information to produce a detailed map of the surface and curvature of your cornea.
Corneal topography offers a comfortable, quick, and painless way to detect irregularities, which are not always apparent with conventional technology. This advanced imaging technique provides not only detailed data on the shape and power of the cornea but also supplies essential information that assists in the diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of certain eye conditions.
In addition to the applications above, corneal topography plays a significant role in treatment planning for cataract surgery, intraocular lens implantation, LASIK, and other refractive procedures. It’s also helpful in assessing the fit of contact lenses.
