I use my optical coherence tomographer (OCT) for evaluating complex contact lenses, such as sclerals. It is important that there is enough space between the cornea and the contact lens.
|•||Evaluating pachymetry and corneal edema|
|•||Measuring soft and GP lens thickness—centrally and peripherally|
|•||Examining lens edges for flaws and causes of discomfort|
|•||Measuring posterior tear film thickness in scleral lenses|
|•||Assessing points of lens bearing to determine the need for design modification|
