Abstract

Corneal topographs that measure the anterior and posterior corneal surface with optical methods need a clear cornea for precise measurements. Opacities cause artifacts in the corneal thickness (with measurements usually being too thin) and corneal curvatures. This is important to know as certain pathologies may repeatedly cause similar artifacts. This is highly relevant after a corneal cross-linking, Lasek or PRK, as these procedures cause typical artifacts that can easily be misinterpreted.
