Purpose: The aim of this study was to report novel ray-tracing customization of surface excimer laser ablation combined with higher fluence corneal crosslinking (CXL) in the stabilization and normalization of ectasia and visual rehabilitation of progressive keratoconus.
Methods: A 28-year-old man with bilateral progressive keratoconus was treated with Athens protocol: CXL combined with photorefractive surface ablation customized by a novel artificial intelligence platform calculating lower- and higher-order aberrations based on wavefront, Scheimpflug tomography, and interferometry axial length data from a single diagnostic device. Visual acuity, refractive error, keratometry, optical coherence tomography and Scheimpflug tomography, and endothelial cell density were evaluated over 12 months. Read More
