Abstract Details


To compare the corneal measurements using Scheimpflug camera in patients with diabetes mellitus and healthy control subjects.


Briz-L Eye Clinic, Baku, Azerbaijan


Twenty five diabetic patients and 25 healthy subjects were prospectively recruited. Two groups were stratified, diabetic group and control group. Central corneal thickness (CCT), keratometry values (Kmean and Kmax), corneal volume (CV), anterior chamber depth (ACD), anterior chamber volume (ACV), Qvalue, frontal and back elevation, and the parameters of corneal variance indices, such as index of surface variance (ISV), index of vertical asymmetry (IVA), center keratoconus index (CKI), index of height asymmetry (IHA) and index of height decentration (IHD), radius minimum (RM) were measured using Pentacam Scheimpflug camera. Endothelial cell density (ECD) was also recorded. Findings were evaluated and compared.


Diabetic corneas were significantly steeper by the difference of Kmax (P = 0.03) and RM (P = 0.04) parameters between groups. There was no statistically significant difference between the 2 groups in CCT, Kmean, CV, ACD, ACV, frontal/back elevation, Qvalue, ECD, and the parameters of corneal variance indices.


Diabetes mellitus affected keratometry and radius values of the human corneas based on the corneal measurements from Scheimpflug camera.
