OPHTHALMOLOGICAL SCREENING:
CORNEAL IMAGING

Corneal conditions can cause marked visual acuity impairment despite often being subtle and not clinically easily appreciable. The cornea can be imaged in 3D using tomography and OCT.

We offer a low-cost corneal imaging service to optometrists in our region where we would like to assist them by making available corneal imaging equipment.

A technician will perform corneal imaging and an Ophthalmologist will review the images and will provide a report to the optometrist.

Corneal imaging protocol:

  1. Corneal Tomography (Galilei system)
  2. OCT cornea for selected cases

This service is aimed at Optometrists who are concerned about a patient’s suboptimal refraction end point where corneal pathology is suspected.

Indicators of keratoconus where topography and tomography should be done include:

  • Vision not correcting to 6/6
  • Myopic shift
  • High astigmatism
  • Asymmetrical astigmatism
  • Myopic astigmatism
  • Scissoring reflex
  • Progression from soft to toric to rigid contact lenses
  • Eye rubbing
  • Allergies associated with poor vision
