Abstract Details


To compare 2 types of pachymetry (ultrasound versus non contact)


Ophthalmological Centre of Northern Greece, Thessaloniki


We present the values of Central Corneal Thickness measurements with 2 pachymeters, one ultrasound and one non contact (Pentacam) of 159 eyes (80 patients) of patients that underwent preoperative evaluation for refractive surgery (PRK – LASIK)


Pentacam pachymetry seems to overestimate the central corneal thickness comparing with ultrasound pachymetry


The evaluation of central corneal thickness using ultrasound seems to be safer regarding refractive surgery patients FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE?: No
