Abstract Details

Purpose:

To report the improvement in unaided visual acuity in non-progressive keratoconus cases previously treated with intracorneal ring segment implants (INTACS).

Setting:

Alsalam International Hospital Kuwait

Methods:

12 eyes of 12 patient treated with intracorneal ring segment implantation for treatment of keratoconus with residual refractive error and non-progressive keratoconus were selected for partial or complete refractive residual error correction by photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) followed by corneal cross linking ( CXL ) in the same sitting. All cases were followed up for one year.

Results:

All eyes included in the study showed stable improvement in the unaided visual acuity one year after PRK and CXL.

Conclusions:

PRK with CXL can be used to enhance unaided visual acuity after treatment of keratoconus with INTACS implants with a stable refractive outcome.

Financial Disclosure:

NONE
