When assessing any computer-generated patient results, the first thing to consider is the quality of the data obtained; with Placido-based topography systems, this is achieved by viewing the raw data and assessing the regularity and completeness of the concentric rings (see Figure 1) Care should be taken while capturing images using Placido-based topographers, as often the nose can block the projection of the nasal rings onto the cornea, and in these instances the patient's head should be twisted away from the eye being imaged to enable more complete image capture.
