OCULOUS Pentacam® for Corneal Mapping

In addition to our lasers, Providence Eye has invested in the OCULOUS Pentacam. This LASIK technology allows Dr. Mozayeni and Dr. Nunnery to learn every detail about your corneas. By looking straight at the green light at the end of what appears to be a long black tunnel, the Pentacam can take a picture of your cornea. Because the picture produced by the Pentacam is so detailed, your surgeon can study the shape, thickness, contour and structural integrity of each cornea, and this enables him to determine the ideal vision correction method for each individual patient.


The Pentacam takes images of your cornea by using a rotating camera, thus producing a 3D photo of the interior part of your eye. When evaluating patients for LASIK, one of the key pieces of data is elevation analysis at the center of the cornea, and with this rotating camera, that measurement is very precise. These photos take less than five seconds per eye and during this short period, up to 25,000 elevation points on your cornea are measured!

Here are examples of what this picture looks like. You may notice that it looks like a topography map. In fact, it is the topography of your cornea, but also much more, as it provides information about corneal thickness, structural integrity and strength. With this information, Dr. Mozayeni and Dr. Nunnery can make the best recommendations for your laser vision correction procedure.
