Winkler von Mohrenfels ASCRS 2011 Comparison Between Central Corneal Thickness Measurements in Healthy Eyes Using a New Device and 2 Other Methods

2 Purpose Klinik und Poliklinik für Augenheilkunde The TMS-5 (Tomey) is a new device for the examination of the anterior eye segment combining Placido- and Scheimpflug-Technology. The purpose of this study was to compare central corneal thickness (CCT) measurements using TMS-5, LenStar/Allegro Biograph (Haag-Streit/WaveLight), and the gold standard ultrasonic pachymetry (Pachymeter SP-3000, Tomey).

3 Material and methods Klinik und Poliklinik für Augenheilkunde 48 eyes of 24 healthy volunteers were included in this comparative study. In all eyes, CCT was measured with the TMS-5 (Tomey, Nagoya, Japan), LenStar (Haag-Streit AG, Koeniz, Switzerland)/Allegro Biograph (WaveLight AG, Erlangen, Germany), and ultrasonic pachymetry (Pachymeter SP-3000, Tomey, Nagoya, Japan). The values obtained from the different devices were compared using Bland-Altman plots and linear regression.

4 Results I Klinik und Poliklinik für Augenheilkunde The mean CCT readings with the TMS-5, LenStar/Allegro Biograph, and ultrasound were µm, µm, and µm, respectively. Regression analysis showed a high correlation between the values obtained with the TMS-5 and the LenStar/Allegro Biograph (r=0.950, p<0.001) and the values obtained with the TMS-5 and ultrasound (r=0.918, p<0.001).

5 Results II Klinik und Poliklinik für Augenheilkunde Compared to the LenStar/Allegro Biograph and ultrasound, the TMS-5 underestimated the CCT. The mean differences were µm compared to the LenStar/Allegro Biograph and µm compared to ultrasound as shown in the Bland-Altman plots.

6 Conclusion Klinik und Poliklinik für Augenheilkunde Regression analysis showed a high correlation between the values obtained with the TMS-5 and the LenStar/Allegro Biograph and the values obtained with the TMS-5 and ultrasound. However, the TMS-5 underestimated the CCT compared to the LenStar/Allegro Biograph and ultrasound. Therefore, the TMS-5, LenStar/Allegro Biograph, and ultrasound should not be used interchangeably for the measurement of CCT.
