9 eyes of 8 children, aged between 11 & 15 years having moderate or severe keratoconus were implanted with the new INTACS SK ring segments. Preoperative Uncorrected Visual Acuity UCVA ,Best Corrected Visual Acuity BCVA were compared with Postoperative UCVA &BCVA. The preoperative and postoperative Pentacam corneal photos were analysed Complications were recorded Follow up period: 1 year


Mean UCVA improved from 0.072(Decimal scale) pre-operatively post-operative to 0.29 post-operatively. Mean BCVA improved from 0.15 pre-operatively to 0.55 post-operatively. MEAN keratometry improved from 53.64 Diopters pre-operatively to 46.53 Diopters post-operatively. No segment migration or extrusion was recorded
