    Objectives: To investigate the possible association between corneal biomechanical parameters and morphological properties in a normal myopic population.Methods and patients: The study consisted of 480 normal myopic eyes (240 healthy volunteers), with ages ranging from 18 to 44 years (mean, std 23.84 ± 5.08 years), and mean spherical equivalent (MSE) ranging from -14.00 to -1.13 D (mean, std –5.68 ± 2.17 D). Corneal hysteresis (CH) and corneal resistance factor (CRF) were measured using the Ocular Response Analyser (ORA; Reichert Ophthalmic Instruments, Depew, New York, USA) in both eyes. Pentacam (Oculus GmbH, Wetzlar, Germany, and software version 1.17r27) were used to obtain corneal central elevation and corneal asphericity (Q value within 6 mm diameters) of both anterior and posterior surfaces, corneal central thickness (CCT),..
