PURPOSE To compare 2 manual methods and 2 automated devices for measuring the horizontal corneal diameter (white-to-white [WTW] distance). SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Johann Wolfgang Goethe-University, Frankfurt am Main, Germany. METHODS In 100 eyes of 61 patients, the WTW distance was measured independently by 2 examiners using the following techniques: the Holladay-Godwin gauge, a measuring caliper, Zeiss IOLMaster, and Orbscan II topography system (Bausch & Lomb). The results… CONTINUE READING
