Abstract Details

Purpose:

To evaluate visual and refractive outcomes after intracorneal continuous ring (ICCR) implantation combined with intrapocket cornealcollagen cross linking in patient with keratoconus.

Setting:

Eye Specialty Private Hospital, Baghdad, Iraq

Methods:

This study assessed the results of implantation of Myoring ICCR combined with CXL in 40 eyes with KC. Outcome measures include UDVA,CDVA(spectacle correction),refraction, complications and side effects. Postoperative follow- up was up to 1 year.

Results:

The study evaluated 40 eyes of 34 patients with a mean age of 25.75 years. Preoperatively, the pachymetry at thinnest location range from (367_555ϻm) and the mean keratometry (K) readings 50.51± 3.94D. Post operatively ,there was statistically significant improvement in the UDVA,CDVA,K reading ,manifest spherical and cylindrical refractive errors ,and spherical equivalent (p<.05).The mean UDVA improved by 13 lines ,CDVA improved by 3.5 lines and the mean K reading decreased by7.14 D .No serious intraoperative complications occurred .Side effects includes glare and night vision problems.

Conclusions:

Treatment of KC with simultaneous ICCR implantation and intrapocket collagen cross linking significantly improved visual and refractive outcomes .the UDVA and CDVA continuously improved during the 1st yearpostoperatively.
