Abstract Details


To evaluate visual and refractive outcomes after intracorneal continuous ring (ICCR) implantation combined with intrapocket corneal collagen cross-linking in a patient with keratoconus


Eye Specialty Private Hospital, Baghdad, Iraq


Intracorneal continuous ring implantation combined with intracorneal pocket collagen cross-linking had been performed in one session for a patient with KC. Follow up parameters include uncorrected and corrected distance visual acuity, keratometry and manifest refraction. Follow- up postoperatively last for 1 year


Forty eyes of thirty-four patients with a mean age of 25.75 years had been included in the study. Preoperatively, the pachymetry at thinnest location range from (367_555ϻm) and the mean keratometry (K) readings 50.51± 3.94D. Postoperatively, all parameters that measured showed statistically significant improvement (p<.05).The mean uncorrected visual acuity(UCVA) improved by 13 lines, corrected distance visual acuity(CDVA) improved by 3.5 lines and the mean K reading decreased by 7.14 D.No serious intraoperative or postoperative complications


Simultaneous Myoring (intracorneal continuous ring) implantation and intrapocket collagen cross-linking for a patient with keratoconus significantly improved visual and refractive outcomes.Visual acuity continuously improved during the 1st year postoperatively.
