Academy Contact Lens Clinic also has a sophisticated computerized system that analyzes the front surface of your eyes. It is called a CORNEAL TOPOGRAPHER. This test tells the Doctors several things:
Do you have any diseases or other irregularities of the front surface of your eyes (cornea) that we should know before beginning your regular eye exam? The CORNEAL TOPOGRAPHER can see and record information that less sophisticated equipment cannot. This could be very valuable to the Doctors in determining a treatment or other course of action for you.
The CORNEAL TOPOGRAPHER can give us detailed information regarding your cornea. If changes do occur in the future, the Doctors will be able to compare today's results to the future changes. This could be very useful in their eye health treatment plan for you.
Could you successfully wear contact lenses? Not everyone can. The CORNEAL TOPOGRAPHER can help design a contact lens with fine precision and comfort for you.
Are you a candidate for laser surgery that improves vision? The CORNEAL TOPOGRAPHER can assist the eye surgeon in how to plan your surgery.
