Abstract

Purpose

To demonstrate treatment options for keratoconus using MyoRing intracorneal implant in central and noncentral cones.

Materials and methods

Five eyes with central and noncentral cones were compared in a retrospective study.

Results

In central cones the maximum of the flattening effect is in the corneal center while in noncentral cones the maximum of the flattening is in area of the cone.

Conclusion

No matter where the cone location is the implantation of MyoRing intracorneal implants always results in a regularization of the central cornea.
