Abstract Details


To evaluate safety and efficacy of intracorneal rings(ICR) implanted using femtosecond laser in stabilized keratoconus patients.


Cornea center ,Alexandria, Egypt.


Prospective non comparative case series.patients were treated with ICR implanted by femtosecond laser..UCVA,BSCVA,K reading, were measured in all cases before surgery and after 3,6 months and 1 year of follow up of 87 eyes of 64 stable keratoconus patients with moderate keratoconus .


The mean UCVA (Snellen decimal) changed from 0.14 (range, 0.05-0.3) preoperatively to 0.68 (range, 0.4-0.8) postoperatively. The mean BCVA changed from 0.73 (range, 0.5-0.9) preoperatively to (range, 0.6-0.9) 0.81 at last follow up postoperatively. There was no loss of lines of UCVA nor BCVA in any of our patients postoperatively.


ICR can be a safe, effective and may provide a fuctional unaided vision for patients with stable keratoconus.
