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 ICRSX (350um thick, 100um wide, 7mm arc diameter and 135�Â�° arc at 90% depth, prepared from gamma-radiated porcine corneas) combined with transepithelial CXL. Placido-based Topographic, Scheimpflug-tomographic and OCT evaluation was performed.

Results:

In mean values: 7.5 diopters (D) flattening in topography and 6,5 in tomography mapping. OCT evaluation of ICRSX placement depth and centration.

Conclusions:

Porcine corneas have long been used as xenografts in cardiac surgery. ICRSX may become an alternative for myopia and/or keratoconus management.

Financial Disclosure:

NONE
