Asymmetry of pachymetry keratometry values helps detect corneas at risk for refractive surgery

PARIS — An asymmetry index evaluating the difference in pachymetry and keratometry findings between the left eye and right eye of the same patient provides additional reliable information to identify corneas at risk for refractive surgery, according to a specialist. “Both topography and artificial intelligence systems help us identifying abnormal corneas and keratoconus suspects but only consider each eye separately. They do not compare right and left eyes, and yet we know that asymmetry between eyes is an indicator of corneal abnormality,” Alain Saad, MD, said at the meeting of (Read more...)
