Abstract Details


To investigate association between corneal biomechanical and tomographic analysis in myopic patients.


Kasr Alainy School of Medicine, Cairo,Egypt


Corneal hysteresis and corneal resistance factor were measured using the Ocular Response Analyser and Corneal tomographic analysis was obtained using Pentacam for right eye of 46 patients.


There is a positive correlation between CH, CRF and Pachy apex (P=0.0001, P<.0001) ,mean K reading (P=0.0023, P=0.0246) and CV ( P=.024, P=0.029). On the other hand, CH and CRF were negatively correlated with age, spherical equivalent, Q value, keratometric power deviation but not statistically significant and positively correlated with spherical aberrations, coma aberrations but not statistically significant.


Positive correlation with CV and negative with KPD may give index for future diagnosis of keratoconus and keratoconus suspect so conducting a study on keratoconus and keratoconus suspect may give clue for diagnosis. FINANCIAL DISCLOUSRE: NONE
