Since the cornea is typically responsible for around 70% of the eye’s refractive power, its topography is critically important in figuring out vision quality. Corneal topography, also known as photokeratoscopy or videokeratography, is an imaging technique for mapping the surface curvature of the outer structure of the eye. Once the three-dimensional map is retrieved, it can help doctors to diagnose and treat a number of conditions, including keratoconus. It can also help in assessing contact lens fit. This procedure is quick and painless for patients.
The Cirrus HD-OCT offers amazing high-definition images of ocular structures by retrieving 27,000 scans per second. Doctors and patients have the advantage of having images stored on a central server so that past exams can be compared to the current scan. Finding abnormal results is quick and easy, and eye care professionals can see the percentage of deviation from normal. Baseline measurements are kept for future comparisons and statistical analysis.
