This post-RK cornea shows central flattening. The irregularity of the flattening centrally, combined with steepening in the far periphery, is typical of post-RK eyes. Figure 3-17. The sagittal curvature map of a post-RK patient shows the typical flattening in blue with midperipheral steepening in darker green. Note the irregular pattern of flattening centrally. Eyes after laser-assisted insitu keratomileusis (LASIK) or photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) also have central flattening, but it is typically much more regular than post-RK eyes.

Measurements are displayed on a color-coded map, with red and orange colors representing thinner areas and blue or green colors representing thicker areas of the cornea. The thinnest area of a normal cornea is within the central 5 degrees and increases in thickness toward the periphery. Normal corneas are thicker in the nasal and superior areas, flattening more temporally. The cornea has a normal central thickness range between 520 and 540 μm. Findings on the pachymetric map may indicate an abnormal cornea.
