Quantitative descriptors of corneal topography determined by computerized algorithm and designed to augment the information derived from topographic maps were evaluated in a clinical study. The surface regularity index, a measure of central corneal optical quality, was highly correlated with best spectacle-corrected visual acuity (rho = 0.80, P less than .001). The relatively low correlation between the surface asymmetry index, a measure of central corneal asymmetry, and best spectacle… CONTINUE READING
