Abstract

Purpose: The aim of this study was to determine the agreement between Pentacam HR (Scheimpflug imaging, Oculus) and Orbscan II (scanning slit topography, Bausch and Lomb) in measuring corneal parameters after photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) for hyperopia. Methods: In this prospective cross-sectional study, 38 hyperopic eyes undergoing PRK were examined before refractive surgery and 8 to 10 months postoperatively using Pentacam HR and Orbscan II. Ultrasound (US) pachymetry was also used to measure central corneal thickness (CCT). The radius of anterior (A-) and posterior (P-) best-fit sphere size (BFS), central elevation (CE), and anterior maximum tangential power in 3 mm (TG3) and 3-5 mm (TG5) zones, anterior chamber depth (ACD), and central corneal thickness (CCT) were collected and used in the analyses. To study the agreement between the measurements made by the two devices, the method described by Bland and Altman was used and the 95 limits of agreement were calculated. Results: The 95 limits of agreement show reasonable agreement between the measurements by Pentacam HR and Orbscan II for A-BFS, P-BFS, A-TG3, and CCT, but not for A-CE, P-CE, A-TG5, or ACD. CCT values obtained by both Pentacam HR and Orbscan II correlated well with the values determined by US pachymetry. Conclusion: Pentacam HR and Orbscan II after PRK for hyperopia show reasonable agreement for determining A-BFS, P-BFS, A-TG3, and CCT, but not for A-CE, P-CE, A-TG5, or ACD. CCT measurements with Pentacam HR have reasonable agreement with US pachymetry. © 2017 Journal of Ophthalmic and Vision Research | Published by Wolters Kluwer - Medknow.
