The posterior corneal p-value and apical radius of 60 Hong Kong Chinese were assessed. The values were derived based on the information of the anterior corneal topography and the corneal thickness in different regions. The mean posterior corneal apical radius along the horizontal meridian was 6.51 mm (SD +/- 0.40 mm) and the p-value was 0.34 (SD +/- 0.38).(More)
Stereoacuity was measured in 30 subjects with a naturally occurring visual acuity (VA) difference between the eyes. The stereoacuity was measured by a modified Howard's apparatus using the staircase method and VA was measured with log MAR charts. Stereoacuity was worse in subjects with a large VA difference between the two eyes; the correlation between(More)
A corneal topography study was carried out on Hong Kong Chinese subjects using a modified keratometer. The Chinese corneal topography measured by this modified keratometer was similar to other studies using the Wesley-Jessen Photo Electronic Keratoscopy (PEK) System 2000. The mean p-values along the horizontal meridian and the vertical meridian were 0.82(More)
Twenty-three optometry students with normal corneal condition were recruited. The intraocular pressure and central corneal curvature of the right eye were measured in a sitting and a 30 degrees head-down posture. The mean (standard deviation) IOPs before and during posture change were 15.6 (2.4) mmHg and 22.1 (2.3) mmHg respectively. This 6.5 mmHg mean rise(More)
The characteristics of prism induced fixation disparity curve at near were studied in 56 asymptomatic young adult Hong Kong Chinese (average age 21 years). The percentage distribution of types of fixation disparity curves was found to be similar to some previous studies, with a higher prevalence of Type I curve (64.3%), followed by Type II (28.6%) and Type(More)
The central posterior corneal radius was measured by assessing the first and second Purkinje images produced from a modified keratometer. This method was initially assessed by measuring five PMMA lens buttons with back surface radii from 6.2 mm to 7.0 mm. It was reasonably accurate when compared with the measurements made using a conventional radiuscope.(More)
A mathematical equation was derived to calculate the corneal p-value based on the central and peripheral corneal radii and the corresponding semichord diameters. The calculation was simplified by a computer program written using GWBASIC. The accuracy of corneal p-value generated from this program was checked with Douthwaite's modified keratometer with good(More)
