Corneal topography scanning is a photography
method that maps the surface of the cornea, the clear front window of the eye.
It functions similarly to a 3D (three-dimensional) map of the world, assisting
in the identification of features such as mountains and valleys.
A corneal topographical scan can identify irregularities in the corneal curvature, typically
smooth. This diagnostic tool helps doctors in monitoring eye conditions and
strategically planning for surgical interventions."
How is Corneal Topography Performed?
Corneal topography is a quick and painless procedure. During
the process, you sit in front of a large, bowl-shaped device. Resting your chin
and forehead in designated areas, the equipment captures images of your eyes
while you focus on a point inside the bowl. These images are then transformed
into color-coded maps. The entire process lasts just a few minutes, ensuring a
pain-free experience, with the device never making direct contact with your
Conditions Corneal Topography is Used:
Scarring: Scarring of the cornea can occur as a result
of trauma or illness. The cornea's shape is altered as a result. A topography
scan quantifies distortion and its impact on vision.
Growths: Topography can be used to track the size of
pterygia or other growths.
Keratoconus and astigmatism: Topography can aid in the
detection and progression of astigmatism and early cases of keratoconus.
Contact lens fitting: Topography scans assist in
determining which type of contact lens can be worn to improve vision. If the
scan reveals a lot of distortion, a specific hard contact lens (RGP) can
occasionally help correct vision.
