    16. Assessment of corneal thickness measurement using swept-source Fourier-domain anterior segment optical coherence tomography and Scheimpflug camera

      Assessment of corneal thickness measurement using swept-source Fourier-domain anterior segment optical coherence tomography and Scheimpflug camera

      We have some comments to share with Szalai et al. to broaden the discussion about swept-source Fourier-domain anterior segment optical coherence tomography and Scheimpflug camera. In the conclusion of their article, Szalai et al. state that “Bland-Altman plots showed good agreement between the measurements of the 2 devices.” However, the 95% limits of agreement (LoA) between swept-source Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) (Casia SS-1000, Tomey Corp.) and Scheimpflug imaging (Pentacam HR, Oculus, Inc.) were very large. For anterior axial keratometry measurements, the 95% LoA ranged from −1.27 to +1.45 diopters (D) and −1.05 to +1.23 D ...

    17. Choroidal Thickness Measurements

      Choroidal Thickness Measurements

      We read with interest recent article by Branchini et al, entitled “Reproducibility of choroidal thickness measurements across 3 spectral domain optical coherence tomography systems.” We commend the authors for their efforts in comparing these instruments, but we feel that their statistical methods may lead to invalid conclusions. The authors claimed to have investigated the reproducibility of choroidal thickness measurements by 3 different spectral domain optical coherence tomography devices, stating there is “good reproducibility among choroidal thickness measurements of images acquired with Cirrus, Spectralis, and RTVue.” The conclusion was based upon the result that there was a high correlation between repeated ...

      Purpose. To assess the repeatability and reproducibility of central corneal thickness (CCT) measurements by high-resolution rotating Scheimpflug imaging (Pentacam, Oculus) and Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (RTvue-100, Optovue) after laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) and to compare the agreement with ultrasound pachymetry (USP). Methods. Forty-seven eyes of 47 patients after LASIK were included in the study.
