Carmel Mountain Vision Care was the first private practice in San Diego to offer corneal topography with the Tomey TMS-1 during the early 1990’s. Our current corneal topographer is the state-of-the-art Humphrey ATLAS CT System. Corneal topography precisely measures the front surface of the eye, called the cornea, while performing powerful statistical analysis for diagnosis. The measurement provides valuable information to our doctors for prescribing contact lenses and Corneal Refractive Therapy, reducing the amount of time required to get you the best prescription. This technology also allows our doctors to properly identify candidates for laser vision correction and monitor the healing response after corneal surgery. Corneal topography also is invaluable in assiting our doctors in detecting sight-threatening corneal pathology including keratoconus and pellucid marginal degeneration.
