    Correlation between pigmented arc and epithelial thickness (COPE) study in orthokeratology-treated patients using OCT measurements

    Purpose To determine the intensity of corneal pigmented arc in orthokeratology (ortho-k)-treated children, and its correlation with key epithelial thickness measurements obtained by anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT). Methods This study is a retrospective case series. Medical records of children who received ortho-k treatment for myopia control in our hospital were reviewed. Intensity of ortho-k-associated pigmented arc and its correlation with key epithelial thickness parameters in the central 7-mm-diameter zone obtained by AS-OCT was examined. The subjects were further divided into apparent and unapparent pigmented arc groups for severity comparison. Results The mean age of children was 11 ...
