Longitudinal Corneal (OCT-based) and Total aberrations in Intracorneal Implant treatment of keratoconus, published in AJO

cSin título

The study explores the longitudinal changes in optical quality in keratoconic eyes implanted with intrastromal ring segments (ICRS).

Corneal aberrations were obtained, for the first time, from OCT. Ocular aberrations were measured with Laser Ray Tracing. ICRS produced a decrease in astigmatism, but on average did not produce a consistent decrease of HOAs. Full study can be found in Perez-Merino et al. “Ocular and Optical Coherence Tomography–Based Corneal Aberrometry in Keratoconic Eyes Treated by Intracorneal Ring Segments”, Am J Ophthalmol 2014;157:116–127.
