The purpose of this study was to test the measurements of a multifunctional device, the NIDEK OPD-Scan III in terms of repeatability and agreement with retinoscopy and Pentacam in cases with emmetropia, ametropia, and KCN (grade 1-3). We enrolled 170 eyes (40 in each group of emmetropia and ametropia, and 90 in the 3 KCN subgroups). Acquisitions were done twice by a single technician to check the intra class correlation, repeatability index, and precision. To assess agreement, we compared OPD-Scan III with retinoscopy and Pentacam results by two blinded technicians...
