To report three cases of keratoconic patients who had progressive corneal topographic flattening during a two-year-follow-up period.
Vardinoyiannion Eye Institute of Crete, University of Crete, Heraklion, Crete, Greece
Three patients with bilateral keratoconus, each of them operated for advanced keratoconus in one of their eyes, were observed for possible progression of the disease for a period of two years. During the two-years-follow-up period topography examination showed progressive corneal flattening at the non-operated eye. One of the patients had increased best spectacle corrected visual acuity, while the others had stable uncorrected and best spectacle corrected visual acuities during that period. All patients have positive family medical history for diabetes mellitus, but none of them was diabetic.
This is the first report of topography based keratoconus regression during a period of two years follow up.
