Overview presentation: "advances in the characterization of corneal Biomechanics"
The characterization of biomechanics of the cornea in clinical practice has reached great popularity in recent times due to the relevance of their study to understand certain changes corneal after a variety of ophthalmological surgeries as well as the evolution and prognosis of certain pathologies. To date, there are few devices that allow characterizing the properties biomechanical corneal vivo, existing not very extensive scientific evidence that corroborates the correlation between properties of corneal biomechanical and topographic parameters and aberrometricos, especially in the field of Pathology strawberry. Specifically, these studies have been carried out with the Ocular Response Analyzer devices (ORA) (Reichert, Buffalo, NY, USA) and Corvis ST (Oculus). The talk aims to show evidence of clinical utility of these devices, as well as the emerging technique of Brillouin optical microscopy and other techniques in development.
