Topography of Cornea with post-Lasik Ectasia

The images below are 3-D computer enhanced corneal topographies of the right and left eye of a patient with post-LASIK corneal ectasia. In a "normal" cornea the surface would be a smooth continuous convex curve. What you are looking at are corneal surfaces as if the patient was looking upward. In the center note the blue color. The blue represents a flat or depressed area. The red areas represent elevated or steep areas of the cornea. In other words, these computer enhanced images represent severely distorted corneas. There are no surgeries or procedures that can make these corneas smooth and regular again as "nature" intended.

EyePrint Pro

EyePrintPro technology creates a scleral lens based on a mold of the cornea. The molding is accurate to 1 or 2 microns and fits perfectly because it exactly mirrors the irregularities of the individual corneal surface. The technology is well suited for post-Lasik, Keratoconus, RK, eye injury, and corneal transplant patients. Read More in this PDF about EyePrintPro Scleral Lens Technology
