The aim is to present a 17 years old patient with rapidly progressive and aggressive keratoconus in both eyes, on which to perform crosslinking.
: Milos Eye Clinic, Belgrade, Serbia.
Uncorrected and best-corrected spectacle vision, mean spherical equivalent refraction and astigmatism, mean central keratometry, mean baseline central pachymetry were recorded in one month, every week.
An increase in myopia and astigmatism of 3 diopters, an increase in mean central keratometry readings on topography of 6 diopters, a decrease in mean central corneal thickness of 20µm were recorded in both eyes in three weeks. Both eyes were treated with crosslinking.
Keratoconus progression in children could be very fast and aggressive. It seems quite necessary to treat eyes that demonstrate rapidly progressive keratoconus with corneal collagen crosslinking. FINANCIAL INTEREST: NONE
