Pentacam Topography

The Pentacam is another machine which takes a photo of your cornea, and displays a topographic map. This highly sophisticated technology gives our LASIK surgeons additional imaging and calculation of corneal curvature, contour and tissue density at the microscopic level. The accuracy and detail provided by the Pentacam Topography was not available with previous technologies.

Sometimes, a Pentacam Topography will be taken of your eyes during your preoperative consultation. LASIK MD surgeons then analyze the unique corneal tissue characteristics of your eye to accurately identify laser eye surgery candidates.

The described technology, services, surgeons, financing or promotions may not be available in your region. To find out what’s available in your area please select the LASIK MD location nearest you.
