1. Influence of Corneal Curvature on Central and Paracentral Pachymetry With Optical Coherence Tomography

    Purpose: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has been found to be valuable to measure the corneal thickness (CT). The purpose of this clinical study was to determine the influence of corneal curvature on central and paracentral pachymetry with slit lamp-adapted OCT using a linear scanning geometry. Methods: In a prospective, comparative observational study, a total of 77 consecutive patients (77 eyes) participated. Central and paracentral (4 mm) CT with slit lamp-adapted OCT (Heidelberg Engineering, Heidelberg, Germany) and with ultrasound (US) pachymetry were performed. The corneal curvature was determined with manual keratometry, and the influence of the corneal curvature on CT with ...
