    Adopting a multidiagnostic method for characterising the anterior segment

    Diagnostic platform provides measurement of objective refraction and ocular abberations

     

    Conclusions

    In conclusion, the new multidiagnostic device is able to provide consistent measurements of refraction and ocular aberrations in healthy eyes. The consistency of refractive measurements is not dependent on the magnitude of the refractive error, with the same precision ability for moderate to high myopia and for hyperopia.

    Likewise, the system is able to provide consistent measurements of corneal curvature at different areas, eccentricity and aberrations in healthy eyes. Corneal curvature and eccentricity measured were found not to be dependent on the magnitude of the measurement, with the same precision ability for flat and steep corneas within the normal range.

    Finally, our study has also confirmed that the multidiagnostic system is able to provide consistent measurements of ACD, central and peripheral pachymetry, WTW and iridocorneal angle in healthy eyes.

    The consistency of the measurements of these anatomical parameters was not dependent on the magnitude of such parameters, with the same precision ability for short and long eyes, small and large corneas, and eyes with deep and shallow anterior chambers within the normal range.

    In clinical practice, the technology can be very useful for detecting different types of pathologies, including incipient forms of corneal ectasia; for evaluating the visual and optical quality outcomes of different refractive treatments; and to evaluate the performance of intraocular implants. Future studies must be performed to evaluate further the possibilities of this new multidiagnostic platform.
