PURPOSE To examine the biomechanical properties of keratoconic eyes following penetrating keratoplasty and to compare results with the biomechanical characteristics of manifest keratoconus, forme fruste keratoconus and normal eyes as measured with the Reichert ocular response analyzer (ORA). METHODS This retrospective analysis comprised a total of 169 eyes: 34 eyes with forme fruste keratoconus (group FF), 36 eyes with manifest keratoconus (Group KC), 36 eyes that have undergone penetrating… CONTINUE READING
