Reduction in k values concluding that CXL plays a significant role in reducing keratometric reading thus retarding progress of keratoconus.
The incision site was taken in the steepest meridian on the magnitude of pre-existing astigmatism which was evaluated by keratometric reading.
Eyes with steeper vertical keratometric reading were subjected to superior small incision cataract surgery (SICS) and those with a steeper horizontal keratometric reading were subjected to temporal small incision cataract surgery (SICS).
In a study done by He Y, Zhu S, Chen M, Li D showed that the changes of corneal astigmatic diopter in Groups A(clear corneal temporal incision) and B(Scleral tunnel temporal incison) after 3month postop from keratometric reading were 1.
Keratometric readings of patients' corneas or measurements of the axial lengths were not available; therefore, an individual correction for the magnification of the optics of the eye was not possible.
Anterior keratometric readings, both flat and steep K values were reduced significantly at six months in both the groups (Table-1) and on comparison both the groups showed no statistical
In the classic triple procedure, penetrating keratoplasty induces changes in the anterior and posterior corneal curvature with reduced predictability because of an alteration in the keratometric readings needed for intraocular lens power calculation.
A greater variability in keratometric readings was observed with an increasing grade of the pterygium (Table-III).
Keratometric readings recorded at each follow up visit.
DISCUSSION: Postoperative astigmatism calculated solely on keratometric readings showed that astigmatism was present in both these groups.
Preoperative and postoperative (12th weeks) keratometric readings and refraction (12 weeks) were used for analysis.
