Corneal opacity is main pathological condition in many corneal diseases which cause to loss of Visual acuity. In ocular surface clinics, it is important to assess the relationship between corneal opacity and visual acuity because of patients Quality of Vision. In this study, swept-source-OCT (SS-OCT) system was employed for imaging of the corneal opacity disorder. The purpose of this study is to assess the SS-OCT system for the corneal opacities as quantitative examination and to evaluate the algorithm of keratectomy simulation. This algorithm provides the entire corneal opacity map and demonstrated virtual PTK image with ablation profile.
