Placido ring topographers have a low ASP relative to Schiempflug cameras and are suitable for purposes such as contact lens fitting. As a result, Placido ring topographers are sufficient for opticians and optometrists. Additionally, combination systems that include both Placido ring topographers and Schiempflug cameras are becoming popular. These systems take advantage of the strengths of each technology for corneal mapping. Schiempflug imaging excels at central corneal diagnostics whereas Placido ring analysis is better for peripheral corneal mapping. Thus, the combined systems are an enticing option for ophthalmologists who want to comprehensively analyze the cornea.

Corneal topography is also known as videokeratography or corneal mapping. Characterizing the curvature of the cornea is important because this tissue contributes significantly to the refractive power of the eye. Corneal topography is used for evaluating the curvature of the cornea. This information is then used for contact lens fitting and for planning refractive procedures such as Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) or Phakic intraocular lens implantation.
