Variazioni di spessore e di curvatura posteriore dopo l’uso di lenti a contatto sclerali nel cheratocono
Highlights •The posterior corneal curvature after scleral lens wearing has never been studied. •A flattening curvature appears in nasal quadrant in intracorneal ring patients and in inferior hemisphere in keratoconus. •The cornea is slightly thinner after scleral lens wear except...
Abstract Purpose To evaluate the differences in corneo-scleral topographic profile between healthy and keratoconus eyes, and their potential diagnostic ability for keratoconus detection. Methods Prospective comparative study including 21 keratoconic eyes (11 patients) and 88 healthy eyes (88 patients). In...
Acuità visiva e stereoacuità nel cheratocono corretto con occhiali e con lenti a contatto rigide gas permeabili
SIGNIFICANCE This study showed an improvement in three-dimensional depth perception of subjects with bilateral and unilateral keratoconus with rigid gas-permeable (RGP) contact lens wear, relative to spectacles. This novel information will aid clinicians to consider RGP contact lenses as a management...
