Objectives: The aim of this study was to assess the intraobserver repeatability of central corneal thickness, peripheral corneal thickness (PCT), keratometry values (steep K, flat K), white-to-white diameter, and anterior chamber depth using the Sirius topography device (Costruzione Strumenti Oftalmici, Florence, Italy) in healthy eyes. Methods: A Sirius device was used by a single examiner to assess 100 eyes in 50 healthy patients. Two consecutive scans were acquired for each eye. Repeatability was assessed using test–retest variability, the coefficient of variation (COV), and the intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC). Results: Fifty patients (100 eyes) met the inclusion criteria. There were 18 women (36%) and 32 men (64%), with an age range of 23 to 56 years. The mean age was 30.38±8.03 years. A COV of 0.4% or less and an ICC of more than 0.99 (showing excellent repeatability) were achieved for most parameters, with the exception of PCT (at 2.5-mm temporal, superior, inferior, and nasal thickness). Conclusion: The anterior segment parameters obtained using the Sirius Scheimpflug camera- Placido corneal topography system were highly repeatable.
