Corneal topography is a non-invasive medical imaging technique for mapping the surface of the cornea. Dr Agarwal’s Textbook on Corneal Topography is the latest edition of this comprehensive guide to the capabilities of this type of imaging.

Divided into six sections, the first is an introduction to corneal topography and orbscan. The following sections cover specific imaging techniques and related issues including orbscan and refractive surgery, pentacam and anterior segment optical coherence tomography, aberropia, aberrations and topography, and refractive procedures and conditions. The final chapter covers corneal topography in cataract surgery.

This third edition is thoroughly updated with four brand new chapters. Section Three on pentacam and anterior segment OCT includes new chapters on corneal inflammation and optical coherence tomography, optical coherence tomography and corneal ectasia, and spectral-domain anterior segment optical coherence tomography in refractive surgery. The final section includes an OCT assessment of glued IOL position.

This highly illustrated guide to the latest developments in the field of corneal topography includes nearly 400 full colour images, making Dr Agarwal’s Textbook on Corneal Topography an essential resource for ophthalmologists.\
