Corneal Mapping

Corneal topography, also known as photokeratoscopy or videokeratography, is a non-invasive medical imaging technique for mapping the surface curvature of the cornea, the outer structure of the eye. Since the cornea is normally responsible for some 70% of the eye's refractive power, its topography is of critical importance in determining the quality of vision.

The three-dimensional map is therefore a valuable aid to the examining ophthalmologist or optometrist and can assist in the diagnosis and treatment of a number of conditions; in planning refractive surgery such as LASIK and evaluation of its results; or in assessing the fit of contact lenses. A development of keratoscopy, corneal topography extends the measurement range from the four points a few millimeters apart that is offered by keratometry to a grid of thousands of points covering the entire cornea. The procedure is carried out in seconds and is completely painless.

Dear patients, friends and neighbors,

In an effort to support the initiative to control the spread of COVID-19 during this challenging and rapidly evolving situation, we have made the decision to close our offices from Wednesday March 18, 2020 thru Tuesday April 7, 2020. We are making this decision out of an abundance of caution to protect our staff, our staff’s families, our patients and our patient’s families.

You can still email us at natickeye@gmail.com and we will be checking voicemail daily. We will return communications as soon as possible.

You can order your contacts from our website and have them directly shipped to your home during our closure.

We hope you all stay safe during these uncertain times.

Dr Stewart Ginsberg/Dr Andrew Zodikoff
