Abstract

To select an appropriate base curve to use in fitting a contact lens in 16 eyes of 10 patients following radial keratotomy, we used a videokeratoscope that generates a 32-ring image, covering the entire cornea, to measure the midperipheral corneal curvature. We then based contact-lens selection on the curvature 3.5 mm superior to the visual axis. Photographic documentation of fluorescein patterns and subjective reports of the patients indicated a successful fitting in all cases.
