By Mazen M., M.D., Ph.D. Sinjab

Corneal topography is a non-invasive clinical imaging method for mapping the outside curvature of the cornea, the outer constitution of the attention. This strategy can be performed with a Pentacam, which makes use of a rotating digital camera to create a 3D snapshot of the anterior of the attention. This moment variation has been totally up-to-date to supply the most recent advancements in corneal topography and tomography utilizing the Pentacam desktop. starting with an creation, the subsequent sections describe the basics of corneal topography and use of the Pentacam with diverse ophthalmic issues. With approximately 250 top of the range, color pictures and illustrations, this concise advisor is mainly worthy to graduate and postgraduate scholars in studying how you can learn and interpret corneal topography.

It is noisier than the sagittal map Curvature Maps/Corneal Power Maps 37 • Corneal astigmatism on either surface should not be higher than 6 D; otherwise it is a risk factor. • ATR astigmatism is by itself suspicious. Clinical Differences between SagitTal and Tangential Curvature Maps • The tangential map is more susceptible to local curvature changes, because it depends on circles. Therefore, it is more capable of revealing corneal irregularity. 31B; there are two maps of same cornea. e. there is no reference axis.

Pattern 2: Oval, where the steepest part of the cornea takes an oval hotspot shape. 18). 19). 20). • Pattern 6: Symmetric Bow-tie (SB): Lobes of the bow-tie are equal in size and have the same axis. 21). • Pattern 7: SB/SRAX: That is a symmetric bow-tie with angulation (skewing) between the axes of lobes “a” and “b”. In this case the corneal astigmatism is known as “non-orthogonal astigmatism”, or the “lazy 8” pattern. 22). • Pattern 8: Asymmetric Bow-tie/inferior steep (AB/IS): That is an asymmetric bow-tie with the inferior lobe bigger than the superior one.
