Central and peripheral corneal thickness in full-term newborns by ultrasonic pachymetry.

Abstract

To establish a standard of normality, the authors studied the central and peripheral (superior, inferior, nasal, and temporal) corneal thickness of 152 healthy, white race, full-term newborns (304 eyes) between 1 and 6 days old, using ultrasonic pachymetry. The mean central corneal thickness (CCT) was 585 +/- 52 microns (ranging from 446-706 microns). The… (More)
