New method for the analysis of corneal biomechanics in keratoconus

Athens Eye Hospital has developed a novel method for the analysis of corneal topography data.

The method reveals the mechanical stress in the corneal tissue based on the analysis of corneal curvature and pachymetry data. 

This method may facilitate the better understanding of conditions such as keratoconus and also in the prognosis of their progression.

The fisrt results with the application of this method were presented at the 21st congress of the ESCRS (Maastricht, 2017).
