Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Computer-assisted analysis of corneal topography is an essential tool to evaluate the corneal surface before and after any keratorefractive procedure. The information it provides cannot be obtained from any other available diagnostic exam. Corneal topography allows the clinician to measure surface irregularities and to correlate them with visual and refractive effects from the surgery.
