Corneal Topography

This is a computerised ophthalmologic test that is done to assess the curvature of the cornea. It provides information on the shape and power of the cornea. It helps to diagnose, monitor and treat various conditions such as keratoconus and astigmatism.

This enables the doctor to determine if clients will need spectacles, contact lenses, cross-linking or corneal transplant.

The equipment consists of a computer linked to a lighted bowl with ring patterns. During the test, the client sits in front of the bowl with their head against a bar and the chin on a rest. The no-contact testing is brief and painless.
