Scheimpflug Tomography Imaging

Indications

Any condition with suspected irregularity of the shape of the cornea, most commonly keratoconus, pellucid marginal degeneration, corneal scars, after corneal or cataract surgery. It helps detect whether the corneal surface is regular or irregular, and helps determine the cause. Early keratoconus is often diagnosed with the use of corneal topography. Changes in curvature can also be followed with repeated exams.

Procedure

Scheimpflug tomography imaging evaluates the front and back surfaces of the cornea and portions of the front of the eye. It can evaluate corneal curvature, corneal thickness, and corneal opacities. Scheimpflug tomography imaging is a rapid, non-invasive in-office that does not require any ocular anesthesia.
