In a recent article, published in Optometry times, Dr. Elise Brisco, OD, FAAO, FCOVD, CCH explores the future of scleral fitting and shares her experience with the corneo-sleral topographer sMap3D™ and the Visionary Optics’ Scleral Lenses Europa and Latitude.
Read about the development of scleral topographers.
“The relatively recent development of the first corneo-scleral topographers—instruments that can measure both the cornea and scleral surfaces— is revolutionizing understanding of the shape of the anterior ocular surface and allowing eyecare providers to custom design scleral lenses from measurement.
The sMap3D™ (Precision Ocular Metrology) corneo-scleral topographer is an instrument that uses triangulation and structured light to measure both the cornea and scleral surfaces, including extreme irregular surfaces that can’t be measured with reflected placido based corneal topographers. The measurements taken with sMap3D™ have been shown to be repeatable and are used to design Europa and Latitude (Visionary Optics) scleral contact lenses.”
