2011-39: Clinical benefits of Color LED topography in keratoconus screening
Detection of (subclinical) keratoconus has become increasingly relevant because, for instance, its presence may affect the outcome of kerato-refractive procedures. With respect to measuring irregular corneal features, Color LED Topography (CLT) is a potentially superior technology compared to other topography techniques. This is an observational study to investigate the sensitivity of CLT for keratoconus detection compared to other corneal topography methods. The study population is: healthy volunteers (≥ 18) and patients (≥ 12) with unilateral clinically diagnosed keratoconus. Thus three groups of eyes can be compared: 1) normal eyes; 2) eyes with clinically diagnosed keratoconus; 3) fellow eyes with suspected subclinical keratoconus.
