PURPOSE To study the short-term corneal response to corneal refractive therapy for myopia and correlate it with corneal biomechanical properties as measured with the ocular response analyzer. METHODS Eight eyes from 8 young subjects were fitted with a reverse geometry contact lens, attempting a myopic correction of -4.00 D. Corneal resistance factor and… CONTINUE READING
