ABSTRACT

Purpose: To study long-term results of MyoRing treatment of keratoconus.

Methods: Retrospective study of MyoRing implantation into a corneal pocket for keratoconus.

Results: Corneal thickness at the thinnest point remained unchanged, SIM K's, manifest sphere and cylinder were significantly improved at the first follow-up 9 months postoperatively and remained stable until the last follow-up about 5 years after surgery. Uncorrected and corrected distance visual acuity (UDVA, CDVA) were significantly improved at the first follow-up 9 months postoperatively and were further ameliorated until the last follow-up about 5 years after surgery.

Conclusion: The treatment was safe and effective with continuing improvement of visual acuity during the 5 years after surgery.

Mentions: The corneal thickness measured at the thinnest point showed no statistically significant changes at both follow-ups compared to the preoperative value or compared to the other postoperative value. Fig. 1a shows the graphical representation. The values for corneal thickness were 440 ± 9 microns preoperatively, 445 ± 8 microns at the first follow-up and 442 ± 7 microns at the second follow-up, respectively.
