Contact Lenses in Ophthalmic Practice by Mark J. Mannis, Karla Zadnik, Cleusa Coral-Ghanem, Newton

By Mark J. Mannis, Karla Zadnik, Cleusa Coral-Ghanem, Newton Kara-José

Regardless of the advances in intraocular lens expertise and the becoming variety of refractive surgical procedure options, the position of touch lenses in ophthalmic perform has purely elevated. this can be due partially to the good strides in fabrics, expertise, increasing functions (both refractive and healing) for touch lenses, and the transparent reputation that touch lenses will continuously be a massive software for the ophthalmologist. With the appropriate of touch lenses as a scientific artwork, requiring an intensive realizing of anatomy, body structure and optics of the attention, this custom is formulaic merely partially. the remainder of touch lens perform calls for sound clinical judgment and choice- making that comes basically with "hands-on" event. The authors tackle this desire via beginning with a didactic process that includes frequently-asked questions and easy solutions in order that the ophthalmology resident, intermediate touch lens practitioner, and optometrist will locate this to be an critical source.

There is great variation in corneal shape within the normal population due to corneal size, astigmatism, influence of eyelids, and other factors. Videokeratography is a useful tool for describing the form of this important optical structure of the eye. 2. What are the methods for evaluating the anterior profile of the cornea? The most common methods of measuring corneal shape are keratometry, videokeratography, and anterior segment analysis. Keratometry Keratometry measures central corneal curvature at two points within the central 2 to 4 mm (3 mm on average) of the cornea and does not measure the mid-peripheral or peripheral cornea.
