Abstract

Purpose

To compare the results of MyoRing implantation for keratoconus using two different techniques for corneal pocket creation.

Materials and methods

Seven eyes suffering from keratoconus were treated using Ziemer LDV for corneal pocket creation and seven eyes suffering from keratoconus were treated using DIOPTEX PocketMaker for corneal pocket creation.

Results

Both groups did not show any statistically significant difference, neither in the severity of the disease nor in the results.

Conclusion

Ziemer LDV and DIOPTEX PocketMaker give equal results for MyoRing implantation for keratoconus.
