Corneal topography is a non-invasive medical imaging technique for mapping the surface curvature of the cornea, the outer structure of the eye. This procedure may be carried out with a Pentacam, which uses a rotating camera to create a 3D image of the anterior of the eye.
This second edition has been fully revised to present ophthalmologists with the latest advances in the interpretation of corneal topography using the Pentacam.
Beginning with discussion on various devices that may be used for corneal topography, the following sections explain accurate interpretation of the images for diagnosis and treatment.
The new edition includes two new chapters on the use of Pentacam topography for refractive surgery patients. The final section presents clinical case studies to assist understanding.
- New edition presenting latest advances in interpretation of Pentacam topography
