Corneal Topography

Corneal topography is a special photography technique that maps the surface of the clear, front window of the eye (the cornea). It produces a three-dimensional (3D) map of the cornea that can help identify features like mountains and valleys. These details are used to diagnose, monitor, and treat various eye conditions.

Preparation for Corneal Topography

There is no specific way to prepare for this examination, but it is important to make sure that the surface of the eye is hydrated. If you wear contact lenses, you will need to stop using them 1-2 weeks before the examination in order to get accurate results.

What conditions can Corneal Topography help diagnose?

A corneal topography test is a non-invasive way to produce detailed three-dimensional maps of your cornea's surface. The test can be used to detect corneal diseases, as well as irregular conditions such as swelling, scarring, abrasions, deformities, and astigmatisms.
