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
