Hi, Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum.
There is nothing to get scared, it is a simple procedure. Corneal topography is a process for mapping the surface curvature of the cornea, which is a clear membrane that covers the front of the eye. It is done to detect the shape and power of cornea, which is a Painless procedure. You will be made to sit in front of a Topographer machine with your forehead against a bar. It will not take more than 10 minutes.
Good Luck.
