Euclid To Host Webinar: ‘Optimizing OrthoK Outcomes with Topography’ Oct. 28

An important skill to become adept at for OrthoK fits, corneal topography also plays an important role in monitoring OrthoK patients during progress checks because the patient is typically not wearing their lenses at those visits. Topography records a baseline that allows for the monitoring of corneal change over time by using difference or subtractive maps. Axial (sagittal) maps show the radius of the surface perpendicular cornea and are used to analyze the optical effects of corneal shape. Tangential maps document the overnight lens position. Elevation maps aid in determining whether a spherical or toric lens is the best choice for the patient. Finally, difference maps show the eye care professional how much corneal change has taken place and provide additional information regarding the overnight wearing position. Take this webinar to learn how to increase your knowledge base and analysis of corneal topography during the fitting and follow-up process for overnight OrthoK patients:

Optimizing OrthoK Outcomes with Topography – It’s Not Always a Pretty Picture

Presenter: Jennifer Harthan, OD, FAAO, FSLS

Date: Wednesday, October 28, 8-9pm

Learning Objective #1: Learn the importance of corneal topography in monitoring the ongoing progress of OrthoK patients

Learning Objective #2: Understand the different types of corneal maps and what role each of them play in the topographical analysis post OrthoK fitting

Learning Objective #3: Feel comfortable that “picture perfect” topography is not always necessary for it to be an extremely useful instrument and procedure in the OrthoK treatment process
