Abstract Details

Purpose:

To describe normative data for corneal Scheimpflug densitometry of normal participants of Indian population.

Setting:

Department of Ophthalmology, NIMS University Hospital, Jaipur, Rajasthan.

Methods:

Total 50 healthy participants were recruited for assessment (100 eyes).Left and right eyes considered separately.All participants assessed using corneal densitometry analysis add-on to standard software of Oculus Pentacam.Densitometry measurements obtained and expressed in standardized grayscale units(GSU)

Results:

32 were males and 18 were females.Mean age was 26.32 years(range 5-70 years).Mean anterior corneal densitometry was 17.46 GSU and mean posterior corneal densitometry was 7.47 GSU.Anterior corneal densitometry was significantly higher than posterior layer (P<0.001).No sex difference was seen

Conclusions:

This add-on to standard imaging software allows rapid and objective assessment of corneal densitometry.This normative data for Indian population may be used as reference facilitating research,complementing clinical examination by identifying corneal diseases
