This video discusses 3 main fields for applying corneal topography in the pediatric age group:
- Medium-to-high astigmatism screening
- In cases of systemic disease, examination related to corneal ectasia development risk
- Clinic evaluation of surgical indications in case of corneal morphology irregularities
In selected pediatric patients, topographically guided refractive surgical approaches can be evaluated to correct high irregular astigmatism, improve anti-amblyopia treatment, and avoid more complex procedures.
