Zeiss Computerized Corneal Topography: This technology allows us to map the front surface of the eye, the cornea. The computerized corneal topographer is used to measure the corneal contour and curvature of every point on the corneal surface. The instrument provides us with a corneal map which can help us diagnose early corneal disease and to help us design a specialty contact or scleral lens for a particular cornea. This map is much like an architectural plan. Every cornea is unique and different. The different colors that you see on the monitor on the wall indicated the “hills and valleys” of a cornea. Without these corneal maps, it would be very difficult to create the lenses we are now creating for our “high need” patient population. With this instrument we can detect at a very early stage corneal conditions such a Keratoconus, Pellucid Marginal Degeneration and a host of other corneal conditions. In addition, this instrument is invaluable in helping us to design specialty contact and scleral lenses.
