Corneal topograhpy and corneal thickness scan
Permalink   
 


Here comes the results. Note the three scans, one just before the procedure, one a month after the procedure and the last are 5 monts and two weeks after the procedure. The vision improvement I've been reporting lately is evident from the K-reading. Also note the corneal thickness value, handwritten on the last scans (bottom of the page)

Valeri, it looks real cool real cool, congratulations!

It's been 2 months since my op. I made an orbsacn on friday. It gives many numbers pachymetry included. I do not have my pictures just before the op. One is in my old docs and I do not know how to get it (realy do not know...I think I'll visit him in a few months...), another ones are in Dresden. So I sent the new ones there and waitng for the reply from Dr. Kohlhaas. ABout pachymetry, one done by the ultrasonic gives one thickness, one done by the orbscan - another: two diferent methodes. I think orbscan underestimates, ultrasonic overestimates. Anyway to see the change I need to do it by an ultrasonic method again. But they are having orbscans here...I had an impression from what I saw on the results of the orbscan that it became thinner. I mean, physically, more links may hold it tighter than before.... What was you pachymetry before the op?

Dr. Kohlaas has my pachimetry numbers, just before the operation, but I am hesitant to ask him to provide me with the numbers as I know he is overwhelmed these days ... otherwise I am also interested what happens before and after the operation with the corneal thickness/

Hi Valeri,

Most of the time i am astounded there is something like the "original" X linking (as done in europe), as for so long we just lived in hope for something like this to come along as a treatment option which has been approved by an ethics committee, that i just want to write and write about how happy i feel!

All the Best Mate...
