Abstract Details


To evaluate the results of collagen cross-linking (CXL) and phakic IOL in keratoconus patients of pashtun race which are a majority ethnic population in Khyber-pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan and southern half of Afghanistan.


Private Practice Setting, Peshawar, Pakistan.


A retrospective study, in which 4 eyes of 2 keratoconus patients of pashtun race were treated with CXL and followed 9 to 12 months later by toric implantable collamer lenses (TICL, STAAR Surgicals) implantation. The mean spherical refraction was -7.06 ± 6.31 D (range, -0.5 to -14.00 D)), and the mean cylinder was -4.25 ± 0.25 D (range, -4.00 to -4.5 D). Post implantation follow up ranged from 1 to 2 years.


: In all 4 eyes, pre-op CDVA improved from 6/9 to UDVA of 6/6. VA remained stable over a follow-up of 1 year in 1st and 2 years in 2nd patient. No complications occurred during the surgical procedures. No eye needed explantation or repositioning of the TICL.


Correction of spherical and cylindrical refractive errors in keratoconic eyes by TICL implantation 9 to 12 months after CXL gave significantly promising outcomes in our community.
