A: The Conlon Eye Institute carries out the following tests and measurements prior to surgery:
Computerized Topography images the cornea’s both sides, to determine the degree of corneal astigmatism and orientation, and thus reduce astigmatism. Forms of treatment include laser arcuate incisions, limbal relaxing incisions, and/or a toric implant.
The IOL Master 700 determines intraocular lens power. This device measures the front of the eye’s curvature and its length. This information is used to calculate the lens’ power.
Macular Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is used to examine the macula, prior to RLE, to confirm the macular health, and thus eliminating any contraindication for RLE.
