Abstract

Corneal thickness is an important parameter of the structure of an eyeball. Prior to cornea refractive surgery, the measurement of corneal thickness has been given general importance. With the development of measuring instruments, the measurement of corneal thickness is safer, more accurate and more comfortable. In this study, common clinical measuring methods and their influencing factors are discussed.
