To appreciate the efficiency and safety the refractive changes after crosslinking in cases of keratoconus.


Department of Ophthalmology Medical Center Tractor Plant Minsk, Belarus


31 eyes (29 patients) to with of II-III stage progressing keratoconus were exposed to crosslinking procedure at presence of riboflavin. The majority of patients was made by women – 53,8 %. Length of follow up was 8-38 months. The cornea was shined with light with length of a wave 370-380 nm at patients of the first group (14 eyes), the second group (17 eyes) – with length of a wave 440-450 nm.


Reliable changes of thickness of a cornea, an average spherical equivalent, data of keratometry at all patients were not registered. Reliable decrease of size of an astigmatism within 2,0 D and increase of visual acuity without and with correction were established in both groups. Stabilization of disease was noted at all patients throughout supervision terms.


Corneal crosslinking is safe and effective method in treatment of keratoconus. FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE?: No
