Abstract

Preoperatively, CCT measurements were higher with Orbscan II as compared to ultrasound. Postoperatively, both Pentacam and Orbscan II measurements were lower than those obtained with ultrasound, but Pentacam had better agreement. The use of ultrasound, as the gold standard method, or Pentacam both appear to be preferable over Orbscan II among patients with high myopia.
