PURPOSE The purpose of the study was to determine the integrity of human eyes after refractive procedures. METHODS Whole human globes underwent either radial keratotomy (RK) with eight incisions, automated lamellar keratoplasty (ALK), photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), or excimer laser assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK). Eyes then were subjected to(More)
PURPOSE To measure the transverse shear modulus of the human corneal stroma and its profile through the depth by mechanical testing, and to assess the validity of the hypothesis that the shear modulus will be greater in the anterior third due to increased interweaving of lamellae. METHODS Torsional rheometry was used to measure the transverse shear(More)
PURPOSE To present a new application of quantitative area pachymetry of the cornea. METHODS Sectorial quantitative area pachymetry of small corneal zones located at the center and surrounding areas is possible by means of the statistical analysis device and tools menu of Orbscan II (Bausch and Lomb). RESULTS Average pachymetry of 1 central zone and 12(More)
