The “enhanced BFS” is generated by utilizing all the valid elevation data from within the 8.0 mm central cornea, and outside the exclusion zone (Fig. The enhanced reference surface works because the exclusion zone centered on the thinnest point incorporates the major ectatic region. The exact size of the exclusion zone varies between 3.0 to 4.0 mm based on a proprietary algorithm, but is typically 3.0 mm for keratoconic corneas. It has been suggested that tomographic-derived pachymetry may be a more valuable method to document ectatic disease and follow progression [42]. Ophthalmology.

Additionally, while using cases of subclinical keratoconus would be germane, there still is no universal agreement on what constitutes subclinical disease, with many investigators still utilizing Amsler-Krumeich and relying on anterior surface topography [10, 23]. … Defining Keratoconus Progression With our ability to stop the progression of keratoconus with treatments such as corneal cross linking it becomes that much more important to come to some consensus about defining progression of the disease.

A new method for grading the severity of keratoconus: the Keratoconus Severity Score (KSS). Both the 95 % and 80 % one-sided confidence intervals for all three parameters were surprisingly small (7.88/4.03 μm for corneal thickness, 0.024/0.012 mm for ARC, and 0.083/0.042 mm for PRC) suggesting that they may perform well as progression determinants. J Adv Res. Various keratoconus diagnosis, staging, and progression criteria are in clinical use. volume 3, Article number: 6 (2016) 2000;26(5):675–83. The limitation of the study is that the confidence intervals were determined on normal subjects and it is highly likely that measurement variability would be greater in ectatic corneas, though these values probably reflect early disease fairly well. This webinar will consider different alternatives to treat keratoconus according to the stage and evolution, will explain the selection criteria to take into account, and how to halt the progression of keratoconus in its initial stages. For each of these parameters (corneal thickness, ARC, PRC) a decrease would be indicative of progression. Several features of this site will not function whilst javascript is disabled. The KERALINK trial tests the hypothesis that corneal cross-linking (CXL) treatment reduces the progression of keratoconus in comparison to standard care in patients aged 10–16 years. Corneal thinning typically occurs inferotemporal as well as central, although superior thinning has also been described [4]. CDVA and keratometry correlated poorly with keratoconus severity. The 95 % and 80 % one-sided confidence intervals for all three parameters were surprisingly small (7.88/4.03 μm for corneal thickness, 0.024/0.012 mm for ARC, and 0.083/0.042 mm for PRC), suggesting that they may perform well as progression determinants. eCollection 2019.

The study protocol was approved by the University of Arizona (Tucson, Arizona) Institutional Review Board. It displays the elevation data against the commonly used best-fit-sphere (BFS) taken from the central 8.0 mm zone, but also uses a newly developed reference surface called the “Enhanced Reference Surface.”. 2013;120(12):2403–12. COVID-19 is an emerging, rapidly evolving situation.

The 3.0 mm zone was selected for the same reasons it was used in the ABCD grading system as this is the exclusion zone the BAD software chooses for most ectatic corneas. A one-sided confidence interval was chosen because progression is indicated by thinning and/or steepening of the anterior and/or posterior corneal surfaces. 2016 Jan 20. This steepened BFS will minimize the elevation difference between the apex of the cone and the BFS. Additionally, in order to describe specific quantitative values that can be used as progression determinants, the normal noise measurement of the three parameters (corneal thickness at the thinnest point, anterior and posterior radius of curvature (ARC, PRC) taken from the 3.0 mm optical zone centered on the thinnest point), was assessed. The BAD display (available on the Pentacam, OCULUS GmbH, Wetzlar, Germany) utilizes both anterior and posterior elevation data and pachymetric data to screen for ectatic change [49, 50].
