Technology: Corneal Topography

Corneal topography is a technique which measures the surface of your cornea.  The instrument produces a very detailed map of the shape and power of the cornea which is the major refracting surface of the eye.  Using computerized imaging technology a three dimensional map aids the optometrist in diagnosing and monitoring various visual conditions.

This is a quick painless easy test to perform.  The images enable us to detect conditions that would be invisible to most conventional testing.  Topography is essential for the pre-operative evaluation for any refractive surgery procedures as well as fitting contact lenses.
