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: To be able to assess the individual results of MyoRing treatment achieved by a specific surgeon, it is necessary to use a plot like the one in Fig. 2 allows to analyze the results, including the surgeon's specific performance, in detail. This performance can be assessed for mild, moderate and advanced cases (Fig. 4).
