Purpose: To evaluate corneal stability, measured by computerized videokeratography (CVK) after discontinuation of contact lens wear in preoperative refractive surgery candidates. Setting: Baylor College of Medicine, Cullen Eye Institute, Houston, Texas, USA. Methods: Topographic differences were analyzed in 136 noncontact lens wearers (NCLVV) and 76 contact lens wearers (CL VV) (18 rigid gas-permeable contact lenses [RGPCL), 58 soft contact lenses (SC14) using EyeSys CVK after discontinuation of SCL wear for 2 weeks and RGPCL wear for 5 weeks.
