Abstract Details



Purpose:

To evaluate safety and efficacy of corneal crosslinking (CXL) and wavefront-based surface ablation (PRK) for refractive correction in patients with bilateral asymmetric topography

Setting:

University-based refractive clinic

Methods:

Prospective, randomized trial of 44 patients (88 eyes). Crosslinking with subsequent PRK after 6 months was performed in one eye (study group) and PRK alone was performed in contra lateral eyes (control group).

Results:

After two years of follow-up, a mean under correction of -0.50 DE was observed in both groups. Study group presented more pronounced transient corneal haze (P < .05), and none of the patients developed clinical, topographic or tomographic signs of corneal ectasia

Conclusions:

Both groups achieved good outcomes with a low rate of complications.
