Tomographic corneal evaluation has added significantly more information in the evaluation of the ectatic cornea. Additional information from the posterior cornea and a full corneal thickness map in addition to anterior corneal analysis has increased the ability to identify early and subtle corneal changes. Although these newer examination modalities have increased our sensitivity in refractive screening, problems still persist when attempting to assure treatment trials (such as collagen cross… CONTINUE READING
