OBJECTIVES: To investigate the topographic factors related to axial length (AL) growth rate in orthokeratology. METHODS: Clinical data of myopic children with orthokeratology lenses from 2010 to 2016 were investigated. Corneal topography (Orbscan II) and IOLMaster-measured AL at baseline and every posttreatment visit were analyzed. Optical map topographies from baseline- and posttreatment-stabilized corneas were analyzed to calculate the refractive power difference between the apex and the periphery (apex-periphery refractive power difference [ARPD]), which estimates the change of peripheral refraction...

AIM: To evaluate the anterior and posterior corneal surfaces using scanning-slit topography and to determine the diagnostic ability of the measured corneal parameters in keratoconus. METHODS: Orbscan II measurements were taken in 39 keratoconic corneas previously diagnosed by corneal topography and in 39 healthy eyes. The central minimum, maximum, and astigmatic simulated keratometry (K) and anterior axial power values were determined. Spherical and cylindrical mean power diopters were obtained at the central and at the steepest point of the cornea both on anterior and on posterior mean power maps...
