To evaluate outcome of posterior chamber toric implantable collamer lens implantation (TICL) in patients with keratoconus
Cornea Clinic, Apollo Hospitals, Hyderabad, India
Keratoconus patients with astigmatism < 6 D and BSCVA of > 20/40 were included in the study.
Thirty-six eyes of 24 patients (mean age: 26.9 years). Mean UCVA and BSCVA improved from 20/200 and 20/40 preoperatively to 20/40+ and 20/25+ postoperatively. Mean spherical equivalent and astigmatism (refraction) were -0.08 and -0.92 D postoperatively. None of the patients lost any line of BSCVA (mean follow-up: 13.7 months).
Implantation of posterior chamber TICL in patients with keratoconus with high myopia appears to be safe and effective procedure.
