Corneal Topography:  How to Capture Terrific, Useful Images  


This course will describe the corneal topography capture process and the considerations necessary to acquire good quality images. Orthok lenses require a degree of accuracy that most other contact lenses do not. How do we capture micron accurate images and of as much of the corneal surface as possible. Additionally, what do we look for once the images are taken? How do you determine a good from bad topography?

9:25 am - 10:15 am

Corneal Topography:  An Essential Orthokeratology Tool - Pre and Post Treatment


Corneal topography is critical to the orthokeratology fitting process prior to fitting to determine candidacy and the initial lens parameters. Then its key to the assessment of the corneal changes and success of treatment. This course will discuss the various ways we use the instrument throughout the orthokeratology treatment. The various interpretations of corneal shape, power and elevation will be reviewed and heavy emphasis will be placed on the post treatment analysis and fit optimization.
