Corneal topography is a process for mapping the surface curvature of the cornea, similar to making a contour map of land.

The purpose of PENTACAM-HR is to produce a detailed description of the shape and power of the cornea. Using computerized imaging technology, the 3-dimensional map produced by the shiemflung imaging technology to diagnose, monitor and treat of various visual conditions.

The procedure itself is painless and brief. It is a noncontact examination that photographs the surface of the eye.

Pentacam eye test is not a routine test. Rather, it is used in diagnosing certain types of problems, in evaluating a disease’s progression, in fitting some types of contact lenses, and in planning surgery.

It is commonly used in preparing for refractive eye surgery such as LASIK, EpiLASIK.

PENTACAM is for diagnosis and management of various corneal curvature abnormalities and diseases such as:

  • Keratoconus, a degenerative condition that causes a thinning of the cornea
  • Corneal transplant or keratoplasty surgery
  • Corneal scars or opacities
  • Corneal deformities
  • Fitting contact lenses
  • Planning refractive surgery such as LASIK

We use the Pentacam Scheimplung technology for LASIK data collection. This data decides patient’s treatment. Most equivalent equipment would test your eyes on 2-3 points but the Occulyzer tests it on 25,000 points giving us very accurate corneal thickness measurements.
