Abstract Details


Evaluate safety, efficacy and stability of RCXL in KCN

Setting: Clinical and Research Eye Institute, Athens, Greece


22 consecutive eyes of 15 patients underwent RCXL. We evaluated UDVA, CDVA, Refraction, Placido topography, Scheimpflug and OCT tomography parameters for a mean of 2.8 years (1 to 4.2).


Mean changes: UDVA 20/70 to 20/40; CDVA 20/40 to 20/25; steepest keratometry in Diopters: 51,1�Â�± 3.71 to 46,8�Â�± 1.81, Index of Height Decentration 0,155 to 0,092. There was no further KC progression, 9 patients functioned without, while 6 with spectacles and/or soft contact lenses.


RCXL appears to be a safe and effective alternative in the management of keratoconus.
