OBJECTIVES To investigate the influence of full scleral lenses on corneal curvature and pachymetry in keratoconus patients. METHODS In this intervention study, 20 eyes of 14 patients were measured by Scheimpflug imaging (Pentacam HR, Oculus) at two time points: directly and ≥1 week after scleral lens removal. Steep, flat and maximal keratometry (K(steep), K(flat) and K(max)) and optical pachymetry were analyzed. A generalized estimating equation analysis was performed to correct for paired… CONTINUE READING
