The Oculus Keratograph Topographer allows us to measure and analyze the moisture level, both qualitatively and quantitatively of the corneal surface. In addition, this instrument allows us to image three dimensionally the corneal surface and the oil producing (Meibomian) glands of the eyelids. The dysfunction of the Meibomian glands is the most frequent cause of dry eye. A healthy tear layer not only helps promote long term contact lens comfort, it is also essential for healthy eyes.
The very special software of the Oculus Keratograph also provides us with a three dimensional image of the corneal surface. This three-dimensional ocular image helps us to create a more detailed scleral lens design than was previously possible.
