Corneal topography and elasticity in normal and keratoconic eyes. A methodological study concerning the pathogenesis of keratoconus.

Abstract

One eye of 27 patients with keratoconus and 37 normals were examined by photokeratoscopy and topographic pachometry to obtain informations about the corneal shape and thickness profile. The progressive alteration of corneal topography in keratoconus may be based on elastic deformation. Through a distention, predominantly of the central area, increasing… (More)
