Optometrists in Calgary Offering Corneal Topography
A person’s cornea, the outer structure of the eye, is extremely vital to vision. In fact, the cornea accounts for nearly two-thirds of the eye’s total optical power. To determine your cornea health, the optometrists in Calgary at Dr. Bishop & Associates will perform corneal topography, which measures the shape and curvature of the cornea.
Through the use of topography, we can create a precise shape-map of the surface of your cornea. Thousands of points are analyzed, resulting in precise readings that help us uncover any corneal irregularities. This process is especially helpful for conditions such as keratoconus, where the cornea has thinned and may bulge outward in areas.
Who Can Benefit from Corneal Topography?
If you have keratoconus, you are typically treated with rigid contact lenses. This helps stabilize the corneal curvature and encourages a return to a more spherical shape. Corneal topography has proven to be extremely beneficial in the design of these lenses and in the evaluation of their effectiveness.
