Corneal Topography

What does this mean for Corneal Topography?

Topographic analysis of the corneal front and back surfaces is based on the true elevation measurement from limbus to limbus. Comparison of pre-op and post-op topographies is easy. Both corneal surfaces can be selected for analysis in axial (sagittal) , tangential or elevation representation modes.

Is corneal pachymetry measured as well?

The corneal thickness is displayed as a color image, showing the entire area from limbus to limbus. Corneal pachymetry is vital for LASIK and other forms of refractive surgery. An accurate measurement is required for precise treatment.
