What is corneal topography?

ANSWER

Corneal topography is a computerized test that maps the curve of your cornea. It can show problems with your eye’s surface, like swelling or scarring, or conditions such as astigmatism. You might have it before you get surgery, a cornea transplant, or a contact lens fitting.
