Abstract Details


To introduce in universal practice examination of patients wishing to carry out the surgical correction of vision using scanning projective keratotopographer "Pentacam"


The Khabarovsk branch of the State Institution Eye Microsurgery Complex named after S.N. Fyodorov


Examination of two groups of patients was conducted: the 1st (30 patients) – with the diagnosis of keratoconus; the 2nd (30patients ) – suspicion on keratoconus; the control group (30 patients) – without eye pathology.


The earliest and characteristic in keratoconus forecasting there were indicators of elevation of a corneal posterior surface. So in the first group they were 4-5 times higher in comparison with the control group. In the 2nd group they were also authentically raised twice in comparison with control.


Corneotopographer "Pentacam" application in preoperative diagnostic examination allows to reveal patients with preclinical keratoconus manifestations. The most informative is the research of elevation of a posterior surface of a cornea.
