Topography-guided laser surgery is a technology that utilizes topographic measurements to map the irregularities of a patient’s corneas and combines that information with refractive error to produce a personalized treatment plan for vision correction patients. This technology is well-suited to patients with irregular corneas, and it can be incorporated into LASIK or PRK to treat nearsightedness, astigmatism, and farsightedness. Keratoconus patients may also benefit from topography-guided PRK in combination with corneal collagen cross-linking. Dr. Herschel will perform a comprehensive eye exam including mapping your corneas to determine if topography-guided LASIK/PRK is best for you.
Who May Be A Candidate For Topography-Guided PRK?
Young Adults and Adults with irregular but thin corneas to treat the following conditions:
Young Adults and Adults with irregular corneas and myopia that is too high to be treated with LASIK
Visian ICL patients with astigmatism after surgery
Keratoconus patients in combination with corneal collagen cross-linking
