Abstract Details


To describe the visual outcome of keratoconus managed with ICRS implantation and to define criteria for predictable outcome.


single hospital, single surgeon, Ojas eye centre, Mumbai, India


This retrospective, nonrandomized, comparative, consecutive case series studied 58 eyes of 43 patients with advanced keratoconus managed by Intacs implantation. The outcome measures were analyzed pre-Intacs and 6 months post-Intacs. Preoperative parameters were correlated with outcome


Intacs were implanted in all eyes with no intraoperative complications. 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 C3R 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.
