CORNEAL TOPOGRAPHY

HOW CAN CORNEAL TOPOGRAPHY HELP YOU?

IT CAN DETECT IRREGULAR CONDITIONS INVISIBLE TO MOST CONVENTIONAL TESTING – A GREAT PLACE TO START ON THE JOURNEY TO PRE-EMPTIVE EYECARE

Corneal topography is a computer assisted diagnostic tool that creates a three-dimensional map of the surface curvature of the cornea.

The cornea (the front window of the eye) is responsible for about 70 percent of the eye’s focusing power. An eye with normal vision has an evenly rounded cornea, but if the cornea is too flat, too steep, or unevenly curved, less than perfect vision results.

The greatest advantage of corneal topography is its ability to detect irregular conditions invisible to most conventional testing.

Corneal topography produces a detailed, visual description of the shape and power of the cornea. This type of analysis provides your optometrist with very fine details regarding the condition of the corneal surface.

These details are used to diagnose, monitor, and treat various eye conditions.

Corneal topography can be utilised in the fitting of contact lenses and the associated costs are charged as part of this process. Using Corneal Topography to detect irregular Corneal conditions often requires additional appointments that will be charged accordingly.

What’s the difference between an ophthalmic optician and a dispensing optician? .
Just like an #ophthalmicoptician (#optometrist) a #dispensingoptician is registered with General Optician Council (GOC) which keeps a list of all registered opticians.
.
@kenyon_opticians owners Fay and Graham are also registered with Association of British Dispensing Opticians which allows them to use the initials FBDO after their names. In order to remain registered all opticians are required to continue their education through lectures and online study.
.
So what are dispensing opticians trained to do?
.
✔️interpret a prescription from an optometrist or ophthalmologist
✔️dispense and fit specs and other optician aids.Whilst you’re trying on our fabulous frames we’re considering how your prescription lenses will look in every frame you try.
✔️take facial and frame measurements to ensure a correct fit AND lens positioning. Lens position can make a HUGE difference to how you see through your specs.
✔️dispense and supervise the dispensing of children under the age of 16
✔️advise on specialist lenses and tints for shooting, fishing, cycling, golf, sailing, infact all kinds of sporting activities.
✔️ordering lenses from prescription laboratories and checking the lenses meet the correct specifications on return
✔️advise partially sighted patients on the use of low visual aids
.
We also repair specs (Graham has been called a magician on many an occasion when broken specs are brought in looking terminal!), adjust specs, advise on minor eye conditions, no two days are the same.
.
So whatever your query, call in for a chat, we’re happy to help, whether it’s to refresh your look or take care of your eyes [👉 link in bio]
