Abstract

In recent years, there has been increasing interest in the characteristics of the peripheral cornea close to the limbus, in both tonometry measures and refractive surgery, but there is relatively little information on these characteristics as provided by modern day pachymetry instruments such as the Orbscan (Bausch & Lomb, Rochester, New York). The current study was therefore undertaken to assess the corneal thickness profile along the horizontal meridian by this scanning slit light method, comparing the data with that obtained with an ultrasound pachymeter.
