Question

 

 

Hi,

I have keratoconus in both eyes past 4+ years. I have already done corneal cross linking for my left eye in 2016 and December 2019 doctor said that i have to do cross linking for both eyes.

After January,2020 i have done this treatment. May i know what is the situation of my eyes?

I have attached my corneal topography testing result.

Please contact me as soon as possible.

Thanks

Answer

Thanks for your Question

The image that you attached is called corneal topography and you can't detect keratoconus by it alone. Pentacam shows more parameters and values than regular topography that can help to diagnose keratocnus.

You have to take pentacam images for your eye and you can send it to me for more evaluation.

Pachymetry is part of pentacam. Pentacam shows many values and parameters that are important for the diagnosis of keratoconus.
