This study is led to decide the relationship between's U.S.G Pachymetry, ORBSCAN Pachymetry and LENSTAR Pachymetry. Cornea is the straightforward piece of the eye that covers the front piece of the eye. it covers the understudy (the opening at the focal point of the eye) Iris (the hued piece of the eye), and foremost chamber (the liquid - filled within the eye) The cornea fundamental capacity is to refract or twist, light. The straightforward cornea contains one 6th of the foremost eyeball. Corneal thickness is vital if there should be an occurrence of Refractive Surgery. If patient having extremely less corneal thickness He/She can’t go through refractive surgery. Deciding treatment methodology as P.R.K and S.B.K The corneal thickness assumes a significant part in the event of Glaucoma. We all realize that a thick cornea gives misleading high perusing of IOP, and strangely slim cornea gives bogus low perusing of IOP. In that condition we want to apply amendment factor in the wake of estimating the IOP. Hence it is exceptionally essential that the patient is having high IOP on account of thick cornea or it is huge. Alongside these circumstances corneal thickness is significant if there should arise an occurrence of any corneal transfer.

  1. Penetrating keratoplasty
  2. Descemets endothelial stripling keratoplasty
  3. Deep front lamellar keratoplasty
  4. Collagen cross connecting

As made sense of over that we have intrusive and harmless technique to quantify corneal thickness. Non-obtrusive strategies are demonstrated in pre lasik assessment orbscan gives total corneal planning including corneal thickness too. To keep away from corneal scraped area we want to do painless examination like orbscan / lenstar. For this concentrate on 160 people groups of the age bunch 19-35 is haphazardly chosen in facilities and Eye camp where this study is directed.
