Corneal Diseases

Corneal Diseases include corneal abrasions, corneal deformities, irregular astigmatisms (following corneal implants) and postoperative cataract extraction with acquired astigmatism.

Diagnosing Corneal Disease

Corneal topography equipment is used to create a map of the surface of the cornea. This equipment consists of a computer linked to a lighted bowl that contains a pattern of rings. During a diagnostic test, you will sit in front of the bowl with your head pressed against a bar while a series of data points are generated. Computer software digitizes these data points to produce a printout of the corneal shape, using different colors to identify different elevations, much like a topographic map of the earth displays changes in the land surface. The non-contact testing is painless and brief.
