Contact Lenses

 

The cornea is the highly curved clear window on the front of the eye. The cornea helps

focus light on the retina and therefore plays a significant role in how well you see. As the curvature of this clear structure changes, both the way your contact lens fits and your prescription, can change. Understanding these exact curves is necessary to properly fit and prescribe contact lenses.

 

 

 

 

  
        Until now,  instruments used for measuring
       the curvature of the cornea were only able to
       measure a small area near the center of the
       cornea. Contact lenses on the other hand,
       involve a much larger area of the cornea.
       The computerized corneal topography
       system measures a wide area of cornea
       utilizing data from almost 8,000 points.

 

 

 

 

 

The printout from this computer uses color to 
create a model of the cornea. The map colors indicate how the cornea flattens and steepens 
over the entire corneal surface area. The  
computer also creates various printout displays
to help us select the contact lens style that will 
fit and feel the best.

The advanced technology of the new Humphrey Corneal Topography System helps us provide 
you with the very best in eye care services.
