What is Specular Microscopy?
This is a process related to your eyes, in this is process your eye is evaluated at the back of the cornea to
look for signs that are related to deterioration and damage. This process takes place for the only reason,
which is to monitor the condition of cornea.
Why do you need to undergo this procedure? Because with time, the condition of your eye also starts to
deteriorate and hence, the cornea of the eye could get affected and in severe cases may result in
blindness. Sometimes, there is no problem with your eye but to the structure of your eyes. Hence, it is
important to get cornea examined once you start to age.
People reportedly face eye problems in later years of their eyes, these infections lead to some major
changes to the cornea of the eye. Here is, where specular microscopy comes into pay. This is a
procedure that tends to observe all the potential changes. With the help of this procedure, you’re able
to detect all sorts of diseases even at their initial stage. It makes it very easy to treat the disease since
the problem hasn’t fully developed.
How is a Specular Microscopy Performed?
Specular microscopy is just like all other eye tests that are being performed on patients. It would start by
taking a picture of your eye and the underlying structure of your eye. A highly qualified eye specialist
would be conducting this test and it would last for almost 30 minutes. Once, a photograph of your eye
has been captured, it would help in diagnosing several diseases which are related to your eyes.
You may wonder, this procedure is like all other eye tests, but it has high-quality results than the rest of the eye exams which are being done.
