Zeiss Computerized Corneal Topography

Zeiss Computerized Corneal Topography: This technology allows us to map the front surface of the eye, the cornea. The computerized corneal topographer is used to measure the corneal contour and curvature of every point on the corneal surface. The instrument provides us with a corneal map which can help us diagnose early corneal disease and to help us design a specialty contact or scleral lens for a particular cornea. This map is much like an architectural plan. Every cornea is unique and different. The different colors that you see on the monitor on the wall indicated the “hills and valleys” of a cornea. Without these corneal maps, it would be very difficult to create the lenses we are now creating for our “high need” patient population. With this instrument we can detect at a very early stage corneal conditions such a Keratoconus, Pellucid Marginal Degeneration and a host of other corneal conditions. In addition, this instrument is invaluable in helping us to design specialty contact and scleral lenses.

Computerized Corneal Topography allows the surface of the cornea to be examined for hills and valleys.

SMAP 3D Scleral Lens Design

Last year we introduced an exciting piece of technology that has allowed us to custom design a scleral lens much more accurately. It is the SMAP 3D, which is a computer attached to a dedicated camera that allows us to obtain a 3 dimensional image of the entire front surface of the eye, including the cornea and the surrounding white portion of the eye (the sclera). Up until now there has not been any technology that would allow us to measure the ocular curvatures outside the cornea. The SMAP allows us to do this. Read More

Blurred Vision, Burning Eyes: This Is a Lasik Success?

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
