Abstract Details


To research the results of keratoconus management with femtosecond laser assisted intracorneal ring implantation


Private Gözakademi Hospital,Denizli,Turkey


49 eyes from 39 patients with keratoconus clinically and topoghraphically diagnosed were included.Preoperation and postoperation refraction,uncorrected visual acuity(UCVA),best corrected visual acuity(BCVA) ,spheric equivalant(SE) and topoghraphic results were evaluated.


The mean age of 49 patients was 27,75± 6,17 years.There were no complication during and after surgery.BCVA(logMar) improved from 0,61± 0,31 preoperatively to 0,21± 0,4 4 months postoperatively(p=0,006) Mean Kmax reduced from 58,09± 5,23 preoperatively to 54,70± 4,29 4 months postoperatively (p=0,002) SE reduced from -10,35± 6,07 preoperatively to -2,53± 1,30 4 months postoperatively (p=0,001)


Femtosecond laser assisted intracorneal ring segment implantation for keraconus management is an effective treatment.We will need more patients and long term follow up results to evaluate long term outcomes.
