Diagnosing Keratoconus

We are now able to detect the presence of keratoconus well before subjective symptoms develop. Diagnosing keratoconus with Wavefront Corneal Topography and Aberrametry measurements have become the standard of care in diagnosing and management of keratoconus. Utilizing new technology, ophthalmic instruments now capture images of the shape of the cornea together with the entire optical system by taking tens of thousands of data points. The results are instantly analyzed and Wavefront topography maps are generated. These printouts will show Dr. Azman a map of the eye-print  (just like a finger print) of the location and severity of any corneal distortion and high order aberrations (HOA).

Corneal specialists agree that it is best to exhaust all non-surgical options for keratoconus before undergoing corneal transplant surgery, especially for younger patients. Optometrists and Ophthalmologists from all over Maryland and surrounding states refer their challenging keratoconus patients to Dr. Azman.
