The aim of this study was to review data extraction strategies for the reporting of non-central corneal thickness with the Pentacam system. Using predefined search terms, the electronic National Institutes of Health database (PubMed) was searched for studies assessing non-central corneal thickness using the Pentacam instrument. The article titles of the search results were screened for relevance. The abstracts of papers with appropriate titles were retrieved and read. Articles with relevant abstracts were obtained and read in full. The reference list of each article was hand searched to identify further studies. Articles reporting central corneal thickness only were excluded.
