    Relations Among Corneal Curvature, Thickness, and Volume in Keratoconus as Evaluated by Anterior Segment–Optical Coherence Tomography

    Purpose : To provide insight into the mechanism underlying corneal deformation in keratoconus, we examined the relations among corneal curvature, thickness, and volume as well as the association of corneal scar formation with these parameters. Methods : A total of 288 corneas of 174 keratoconus patients and 114 corneas of 57 control subjects were examined by anterior segment–optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT). Anterior and posterior refractive values, corneal thickness (CT), and corneal volume (CV) were determined by AS-OCT for both control and keratoconic eyes. The pattern of corneal stromal scarring was also determined from the AS-OCT images. Results : The distribution of CV ...
