Pre-Testing Corneal Topography

Corneal topography is a useful pre-operative test that maps the front surface of the eye, which is the cornea and the cornea is the window of the eye. We are proud to have invested in advanced technology that enables our eye doctors to provide advanced care to patients in New York and the surrounding communities.

What are the benefits of corneal topography?

A corneal topographer shows us the shape, contour, and amount of astigmatism in the cornea. Additionally, it detects irregularities in the cornea. Moreover, corneal topography can identify irregular zones to diagnose conditions such as keratoconus, which is a corneal disease that can be diagnosed after corneal topography. Diagnosis plays a critical role in management of keratoconus, which is usually diagnosed in young adults. And then as you get older, the condition actually progressively gets worse. We can map out these changes over time when we take corneal topography.
It is also very helpful when fitting gas permeable, scleral lenses, and ortho-k lenses. For any type of specialty contact lens, corneal topography is necessary.

How does a corneal topographer aid in contact lens fitting?

A corneal topographer helps us determine where and how to fit you with contact lenses. Depending on the contour, certain contact lenses may be more appropriate, such as hybrid lenses, which is a combination of soft and gas permeable lenses, or custom scleral designs.
With the increase of myopia or nearsightedness in children, and the research that shows the dangers of high myopia, orthokeratology has become a very popular field in recent years. It is now possible to slow the process of a child's myopia increasing over time and control it using specialized contact lenses called orthokeratology or ortho-k. Corneal topography serves as your baseline measurement when designing an ortho K lens. Therefore, we use that on every patient who comes for ortho-k on every visit, because we want to see changes that we're promoting through the use of ortho-k contact lenses.

Testimonials


At Amplify with Dr Wernick I was seeking help for seemingly intractable, probably age-related dryness. I've seen other doctors about it, and that has been helpful, but what he explained to me about it and the careful way he answered all my questions gave me so much more of a clear understanding of what is going on (and is not) that I am more able to implement all his and others' recommendations than I was before. And he gave me additional resources for further follow-up. I am most grateful.

Wow! This is a great Eye Care medical facility. I was thoroughly examined by Dr. Pinkhasov for over 2 hours. She made sure to check my eyes for pretty much everything and patiently explained proper care for my eyes. They definitely know how to provide great care and treat their patients right. Now I know why they have such a great reputation and been around for so long.

Dr. Kavner is a gifted diagnostician and orthoptic therapist. He treated me several decades ago for a condition similar to dyslexia. I was having migraines five times per week. I worked with him for about a year and I experienced tremendous improvement (down to 3-4 per year) that has lasted.

Dr. Kavner recommended two types of eye therapy for my daughter. One of them using bio-feedback. In just three sessions she is seeing considerably better. She shouted this morning: Ooh my God! I could not see these letters with my glasses on, and now I can see them without my glasses. If you are willing and able to invest in improving your vision, this is a good place to go to!

I have always found Dr Kavner's work, expertise and wisdom of the highest caliber. As one of the fathers of OT, occupational othomology, his depth and breadth of knowledge about the eyes' health and wellbeing of the patient is exemplary. Cannot say enough good things about him.
