Resumen

MIRANDA HERNANDEZ, Iramis et al. Comparative study of the central corneal thickness measurements taken by Lenstar, Gallilei and Pentacam equipment. Rev Cubana Oftalmol [online]. 2012, vol.25, n.1, pp.65-71. ISSN 0864-2176.

Objective: To compare the central corneal thickness measurements taken by pachimetry with the partial coherence interferometry, Lenstar and with Scheimpflug systems (Pentacam; Oculus) and Galilei (Ziemer, Switzerland). Methods: Comparative and prospective study of 120 eyes from 60 patients. Several recommended measurements were taken with the optical biometers LenstarLS 900 (Haag Streit AG) and with Pentacam y Galilei topographers. The results were evaluated using the linear regresión analysis and Pearson´s correlation. Results: There is high correlation among the central corneal thickness measurements taken by the Lenstar equipment and topographers Pentacam and Galilei. Conclusion: The new biometer LENSTAR provided results that correlated very well with those of the Pentacam and Galilei systems. The Lenstar is a precise device that will be helpful for any cataract or refractive surgery.
