The Medmont E300
The Medmont E300 is considered the standard when it comes to corneal topographers. It has a small-cone placido disc design allowing for precise captured data across the cornea. This instrument is used to screen for any early signs of corneal diseases such as keratonocus and is used to help Dr. Chai design an orthokeratology lens for your child.
