Posterior-corneal-elevation-detection


In this study done in Ibaraki, Japan, keratoconus and cornea researchers wanted to see whether  three-dimensional (3D) corneal and anterior segment optical coherence tomography (CAS-OCT) or  a rotating Scheimpflug camera combined with a Placido topography system (Scheimpflug camera with topography) was better to study the cornea. They wanted to see how it would be best to detect the signs of early keratoconus disease. Their goal was to asses if  normal eyes and forme fruste keratoconus could be separated based on that criteria. They found out that both systems worked equally good. Our own Los Angeles Keratoconus Expert feels an early cornea topography works equally good in the hands of an experienced keratoconus expert.
