The Eaglet Eye - EYE SURFACE PROFILER is a device that provides a topography map that goes way beyond the cornea - onto the sclera. This provides us vital data that helps us to improve the fitting process of scleral lenses. The additional data gained from the scans enable us to produce more complex lens lenses for the irregular ocular surface.
