To assess the inter-device consistency of corneal curvature and central corneal thickness between Pentacam and a swept-source Fourier-domain anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) in ectopia lentis patients. Totally 72 eyes of ectopia lentis patients were recruited. Central corneal thickness (CCT), corneal curvature values and corneal astigmatism were obtained from both the Pentacam and AS-OCT (CASIA2). Repeatability was evaluated for both devices. The coefficient of repeatability (COR) and the relative COR was calculated. Bland-Altman plots were conducted to evaluate the inter-device agreement of measurement. Orthogonal linear regression was used to examine any proportional bias. The mean difference of CCT, steep anterior corneal curvature (anterior KS), flat anterior corneal curvature (anterior Kf), anterior corneal astigmatism (ACA), steep posterior corneal curvature (posterior KS), flat posterior corneal curvature (posterior Kf), posterior corneal astigmatism (PCA), steep true net power (TNP KS), flat true net power (TNP Kf) and total corneal astigmatism (TCA) between Pentacam and CASIA2 were 7.03±9.70 µm, -0.19±0.41 D, -0.27±0.35 D, 0.04±0.47 D, -0.17±0.23 D, -0.11±0.11 D, -0.02±1.02 D -0.41±0.43 D, -0.52±0.46 D, and -0.15±0.96 D, respectively. For measurement of TNP Kf with the Pentacam and CASIA2, a mean difference of 0.52 D and COR of 0.90 with P=0.02 was detected. There was no significant difference in CCT (P=0.393), anterior Kf (P=0.107), anterior Ks (P=0.414), ACA (P=0.131), posterior Kf (P=0.286), posterior Ks (P=0.418), PCA (P=0.105), TNP Ks (P=0.054), and TCA (P=0.977) between Pentacam and CASIA2. Our study reveals good agreement of CCT, corneal curvature and corneal astigmatism measured by CASIA2 and Pentacam in ectopia lentis patients. However, there was significant difference for CCT and corneal curvature values obtained by the two devices.
