Abstract Details

Purpose:

Evaluate ex-vivo the efficacy and feasibility of a new technique.

Setting:

LaserVision.gr Clinical and Research Eye Institute, Athens, Greece

Methods:

Eight human donor corneas were subjected to femto-assisted CIX (150um thick, 5mm diameter prepared from gamma-radiated porcine corneas) placed within a cornea pocket at 250um depth, then combined with transepithelial CXL. Placido-based Topographic, Scheimpflug-tomographic and OCT evaluation was performed.

Results:

In mean values: 3.5 diopters (D) steepening in topography and 3,75 in tomography mapping. OCT evaluation of CIX placement depth and centration.

Conclusions:

Porcine corneas have long been used as xenografts in cardiac surgery. CIX may become an alternative for hyperopia, presbyopia and/or keratoconus management.

Financial Disclosure:
