This equipment is called a corneal tomograph because, in addition to capturing and analyzing information from the anterior surface of the cornea (by the reflection of Placido's discs), it also obtains data from the posterior surface (using a slit beam of light), unlike corneal topographers based solely on reflection, which only captures information from the anterior corneal surface.
The global ophthalmology diagnostics and surgical devices market report provides market size estimates (Revenue USD million - 2014 to 2021) for key market segments based on diagnostic devices (autorefractometers, corneal topographers, fluorescein angiography, fundus cameras, gonioscopy, keratometry, ophthalmic echography (ultrasound), ophthalmoscopy, OCT systems, pachymetry, perimeters, slit lamps, specular microscopy, tonometry), surgical devices (contact lenses, spectacle lenses, vision care, cataract, glaucoma, refractive, and vitreoretinal surgery devices), its applications (diagnostics, surgical, and vision care), and also forecasts growth trends (CAGR% - 2017 to 2021).
