Abstract Details


To evaluate the refractive out comes: the UCVA, BSCVA, sfero equivalente (SE), topo-aberrometric and structural data after 6 months from the execution of standardized laser – assisted lamellar keratoplasty descemetica, mushroom cut and use of corneal polarizer. The suture was performer in detached points.

It is considered the patient affected by keratoconus 3° stage, was subjected to a Standardized Descemetic Intrabubble with the’aid of Femtolaser and the use of corneal polarizer. For the data refractive is used the ETDRS scale and analysis with topography and aberrometry, structural data with OCT anterior segment.


We performed a preoperative assessment after 6 months and 1 year of UCVA and BSCVA average, the sferoequivalent SE, topographic astigmatism average and structural data OCT. 6 months: Ucva average 4/10, Bscva average 8/10, SE – 2,30±2,60, Topographic Astigmatism average 2,70±1,60); 1 year: Ucva average 4/10, Bscva average 8/10, SE – 1,65±2,00, Topographic Astigmatism average 2,20±1,50.The results can be attributed to the surgeon’s dexterity with casuistry 42 personnel cases of lamellar keratoplastic performed. The corneal polarizer can be used intraoperative or outpatient. You can use in lasik, penetrating and lamellar keratoplasty and analysis of keratoconus after cross-linking.


the mushroom cut determines a good biomechanical stabilization. The polarizer corneal helps the orientation of the corneal lamellas, respects the corneal anatomy, improves the contrast sensibility and determines a minor astigmatism. You need a more extensive case studies and a longer follow-up.
