Purpose: To evaluate the correlations between corneal biomechanical indices from dynamic Scheimpflug assessment and optical quality assessed as higher-order aberrations (HOAs) using a Hartmann-Shack ocular wavefront sensor in patients with keratoconus (KC).
Methods: In this prospective, observational case series, the eyes with KC or KC suspect (KCS) from Osaka University Hospital, Osaka, Japan, were analyzed. Corneal biomechanical assessment was performed using Corvis ST (Oculus Optikgeräte GmbH, Wetzlar, Germany), and ocular wavefront aberrations were measured using the KR-1W (Topcon Corp, Tokyo, Japan).
