1. Thickness Mapping of the Cornea and Epithelium Using Optical Coherence Tomography.

    Purpose. To measure corneal and epithelial thickness across four meridians using Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and to compare these measurements between normal non-lens wearers (NLW), rigid gas permeable (RGP) lens wearers, and RGP-wearing keratoconics (KC). Methods. Both eyes of 60 subjects were measured (20 NLW, nine female:11 male, 27.6 +/- 5.9 years; 20 RGP, 20 female, 23.9 +/- 7.6 years; and 20 KC, seven female:13 male, 32.4 +/- 8.1 years). A customized fixation target employing LEDs in eight directions of gaze was attached to the OCT and corneal images obtained. Raw OCT scans were analyzed ...
