Figure 3-10 shows a pachymetric map from a healthy patient (Figure 3-10A) and a patient with keratoconus (Figure 3-10B). Pachymetry information is useful in glaucoma assessment, as well as in screening refractive surgery candidates and estimating residual corneal bed thickness postoperatively. These data are invaluable when combined with the other maps to rule out keratoconus or forme fruste keratoconus. Figures 3-11 and 3-12 illustrate the subtle differences between the forme fruste keratoconus, true keratoconus, and pellucid marginal degeneration.

Tear Film The tear film of the eye covers the anterior surface of the cornea. It is composed of 3 separate layers: an anterior lipid layer, a middle aqueous layer, and a posterior mucin layer. 18 The lipid layer is produced by meibomian glands as a means by which to increase surface tension and therefore prevent evaporation of the aqueous layer. The aqueous layer is secreted by the main lacrimal glands and the accessory lacrimal glands of Wolfring and Krause and primarily serves to lubricate the corneal epithelium.

The corneal nerves serve 2 main functions. First, they provide protection by serving as the afferent portion of an aversion reflex in response to any contact with the corneal surface. Second, corneal nerves secrete trophic factors for the preservation of corneal health. If corneal nerves are damaged either by disease or trauma, the lack of adequate production of trophic factors could lead to neurotrophic keratitis, which is characterized by epithelial sloughing and impaired healing. CORNEAL OPTICS The cornea is the first structure that interacts with light as it is being transferred into the eye and contributes the greatest amount of refractive power.
