    Keratoconus diagnosis with optical coherence tomography–based pachymetric scoring system

    Purpose To develop an optical coherence tomography (OCT) pachymetry map–based keratoconus risk scoring system. Settings Doheny Eye Institute, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California, and Brass Eye Center, New York, New York, USA; Department of Ophthalmology, Affiliated Eye Hospital of Wenzhou Medical College, Wenzhou, China. Design Cross-sectional study. Methods Fourier-domain OCT was used to acquire corneal pachymetry maps in normal and keratoconus subjects. Pachymetric variables were minimum, minimum−median, superior–inferior (S–I), superonasal–inferotemporal (SN–IT), and the vertical location of the thinnest cornea (Ymin). A logistic regression formula and a scoring system were developed based on ...
