Anterior corneal curvature, shape factor can determine posterior corneal shape in patients with keratoconus

Prediction of central posterior corneal curvature and shape factor are possible through the evaluation of anterior curvature and shape in patients with keratoconus, according to a study. The study included 61 eyes of 61 patients between the ages of 14 and 64 years with keratoconus. The patients were examined for anterior and posterior mean corneal radius for 3 mm, 5 mm and 7 mm, anterior and posterior mean shape factor for 4.5 mm and 8 mm, central and minimal corneal thickness, and anterior chamber depth.
