Corneal Topography

Corneal topography is a method of computer-assisted examination of the cornea, the clear front portion of the eye that transmits and focuses light into the eye. Corneal topography is performed by projecting illuminated rings onto the corneal surface which are reflected back and measured by the instrument. The test results in the generation of a topographical map of the cornea.

Corneal topography is used to identify the curvature of the cornea and to identify distortions (such as Keratoconus) or scarring of the cornea. It is also used as an aid in fitting contact lenses and in the evaluation of patients undergoing LASIK and other surgeries.

At Accent on Vision Albuquerque, we use the latest technology from Zeiss. The i.Profiler Plus is a fully automated procedure that can take measurements of both eyes in approximately 60 seconds. This instrument can measure high-order aberrations that can degrade vision and reduce contrast, and map the curvature of the cornea with precision.
