The article reports on a retrospective study by Dr. Heather Weissman and colleague that aims to assess the correlation between the values obtained using refractive surgery screening devices. Topics discussed include the number of patients who took a refractive surgical evaluation using Scheimpflug camera, a graph illustrating Pearson's Correlation Coefficients, and the correlation between the devices when the spectral-domain optical coherence tomography values were averaged together.
