Humphreys Atlas Corneal Topography

We are leading the way in providing better corneal care in Sumter county by being the only office to offer advanced corneal mapping technology. Using a three- dimensional imaging process and computer digital analysis, we can obtain a topographical map of your cornea much like a topographical land map. 

With this data, Dr. West is able to customize your contact lens fit and provide exceptional follow-up care to assure your continued ocular health. In addition, this instrument is very useful in managing patients with diseased, scarred, or transplanted corneas, such as Keratoconus, a disease that causes thinning and distortions of the corneal surface. 

Also, corneal topography is essential in determining the suitability for Laser Vision Correction and in providing post-operative care. One of the newest uses of this instrument is in managing patients during Vision Shaping Treatment (VST). VST is a non-surgical process using custom designed shaping lenses that are worn during sleep to gently reshape the front surface of the eye (cornea) and reduce near-sightedness. It provides clear vision throughout the day without glasses, contact lenses, or surgery. and
