Abstract Details


To study visual and refractive outcomes of simultaneous Intra corneal ring segments (ICRS) with corneal collagen crosslinking (CXL) in corneal ectasia and to define criteria for predictable outcome.


Ojas Laser surgery centre, Bandra, Mumbai. Single centre, single surgeon.


A retrospective observational study was done. Subjects with documented progression of keratoconus were included in study. Thirty keratoconic eyes who had undergone Femtosecond assisted Intracorneal Ring Segment insertion with simultaneous corneal collagen crosslinking (CXL) formed study population. CXL was performed with epi off technique and Dresden protocol was followed. Post operative spherical equivalent, Kmax on corneal topography and BCVA on Snellen's acuity chart were noted at 1 week, 1 month and 6 months.


Post op Mean spherical equivalent improved from 4.75 ± 0.09 to 1.5 ± 0.7 at 6 months and BCVA in decimal scale improved from pre op value of 0.4 ± 0.12 to post op value of 0.29 ± 0.15 at 6 months.


Simultaneous intra corneal ring segments with CXL showed statistically significant improvement in Mean spherical equivalent and also BCVA improved by three lines in decimal scale at 6 months follow-up. Methodological pre op work up, patient selection and following the nomogram leads to predictable outcomes.
