PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate the repeatability of central corneal thickness (CCT) measurements in normal eyes using 2 new noncontact specular microscopes (NCSMs) EM-3000 (Tomey, Japan) and SP-02 (CSO, Italy) and to compare the results with those obtained from an SP-3000P NCSM (Topcon, Japan) and ultrasound pachymetry (USP).

PURPOSE To evaluate the agreement of ocular measurements obtained with a new optical biometer (AL-Scan) and a previously validated optical biometer (Lenstar). SETTING Eye Hospital of Wenzhou Medical University, Wenzhou, Zhejiang, China. DESIGN Prospective observational cross-sectional study. METHODS For a comprehensive comparison between the partial(More)
PURPOSE To determine the effectiveness of different interventions to slow down the progression of myopia in children. METHODS We searched MEDLINE, EMBASE, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, World Health Organization International Clinical Trials Registry Platform, and ClinicalTrials.gov from inception to August 2014. We selected randomized(More)
Purpose. To assess the consistency of anterior segment measurements obtained using a Sirius Scheimpflug/Placido photography-based topography system (CSO, Italy) and IOLMaster partial coherence interferometry (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Germany) in eyes with cataracts. Methods. A total of 90 eyes of 90 patients were included in this prospective study. The anterior(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the bilateral symmetry of the global corneal topography in normal corneas with a wide range of curvature, astigmatism and thickness values. DESIGN Cross-Sectional Study. METHODS Topography images were recorded for the anterior and posterior surfaces of 342 participants using a Pentacam. Elevation data were fitted to a general(More)
PURPOSE To determine the repeatability and reproducibility of measurements of central corneal thickness (CCT) using optical low-coherence reflectometry (Lenstar LS900; Haag Streit) in normal eyes and post-femtosecond laser in situ keratomileusis (post-FS-LASIK) eyes and evaluate their agreement with ultrasound (US) pachymetry. METHODS CCT was measured(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate axial length (AL) measurement failure rate with the IOLMaster (Carl Zeiss AG, Germany) and Lenstar LS 900 (Haag-Streit AG, Switzerland) in eyes with cataract. METHODS Two hundred and ninety-six eyes of 170 patients with cataract were enrolled. Cataract type and severity were graded using the Lens Opacities Classification System III(More)
The biomechanical changes in rabbit cornea preserved in storage media with different glucose concentrations are experimentally assessed. Two groups of eight fresh rabbit corneas were preserved for 10 days in storage medium Optisol-GS with glucose concentrations of 14 and 28 mM, respectively. Eight additional corneas preserved, glucose-free, in the same(More)
The relationship of corneal biomechanical metrics provided by the Ocular Response Analyzer (ORA) and Corvis ST (CVS) with physical intraocular pressure (IOPp) and central corneal thickness (CCT) was evaluated. Thirty fresh enucleated eyes of 30 rabbits were used in ex vivo whole globe inflation experiments. IOPp was measured with a pressure transducer and(More)
Purpose. To assess the repeatability and reproducibility of central corneal thickness (CCT) measurements by corneal dynamic Scheimpflug analyzer Corvis ST in normal eyes and compare the agreement with Pentacam rotating Scheimpflug System and ultrasound pachymetry. Methods. 84 right eyes underwent Corvis ST measurements performed by two operators. The(More)
