For example, the corneal biomechanical index was created to detect keratoconus based on corneal deformation parameters and horizontal thickness profile  from the Oculus Corvis ST . In addition, a novel software was developed for enabling a robust integration of corneal tomography by pentacam and biomechanical data by Corvis ST. The TBI (Tomography and Biomechanical Index) is calculated using artificial intelligence to optimize ectasia detection. 79 % specificity. 2 % specificity. 6 (Fig.
