To verify clinical applicances of computerized corneal topography (CCT) on incisional refractive surgery (RK).


RK candidates underwent complete eye exam including CCT. From 219 patients, 63 were excluded due to others eye diseases or "keratoconus suspect-patients". Corneal Topography was analysed by three different observers and classified as rounded, bow-tie and irregular.


36 patients (66 eyes) were included in these analyses and underwent RK. Mean follow up was 13.7 months. Most of the topographies evoluted to a more regular pattern after RK. A significant agreement was found among the observers in the classification pre and pos operative topographies.


CCT is necessary in selecting and monitoring RK patients.
