Abstract Details



Purpose:

To evaluate the refractive outcomes: the best natural visual acuity (UCVA) , the best corrected visual acuity with lenses( BSCVA) and the topo-aberrometric data after 3 years from the execution of standardized laser-assisted lamellar keratoplasty descemetica.

Setting:

OPHTHALMOLOGY DEPARTMENT IRCSS- Ospedale Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza S.Giovanni Rotondo-FG ITALY

Methods:

They will be evaluated 10 eyes of 10 patients affected by keratoconus 3° stage. The patients were subjected to a Standardized Descemetic Intrabubble with the'aid of Femtolaser . For the data refractive analysis UCVA e BSCVA we used the ETDRS scale randomized survey and data were evaluated with by topoaberrometric analysis.

Results:

We performed a preoperative assessment after 1 year, 2 years,3 years and of UCVA average and BSCVA average, the sferoequivalent SE and topographic astigmatism average. Ucva average 4/10, Bscva average 8/10, SE -1,65±2,25, Topographic Astigmatism average 2,60±1,50). The average astigmatism in Intrabubble is lower than Manual technique and also the percentage of success of the Bubble with Femtolaser is 85% in contrast to Bubble manual that is 65%.

Conclusions:

The first results showed a marked improvement in visual acuity after 6 months and greater stability compared to other types of cutting topographical. There is a good result residual astigmatism at 3 years. Furthermore, the fact of being descemetici allows a better recovery of visual acuity. FINANCIAL INTEREST: NONE
