    Differences between Scheimpflug and optical coherence tomography in determining safety distances in eyes with an iris-fixating phakic intraocular lens

    Purpose To investigate the agreement and reliability of anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) and Scheimpflug imaging in measuring the distance from the anterior edge of an iris-fixated phakic intraocular lens (IF-pIOL) to the corneal endothelium. Methods Anterior segment configuration was assessed in a total of 62 eyes of which 25 hyperopic and 37 myopic eyes, all corrected with an IF-pIOL. Measurements were performed by two independent observers using AS-OCT (Visante, Model 1000, Carl Zeiss Meditec Inc.) and Scheimpflug imaging (Pentacam HR, Oculus Optikgerate). The distance from the anterior edge of the pIOL to the endothelium was measured in five ...
