The pathogenesis of keratoconus still remains unclear. Hypotheses that this condition has an inflammatory(More)
PURPOSE To determine the refractometric, keratometric and functional results 3 years after cross-linking therapy in patients with keratoconus. PATIENTS AND METHODS Eighty-one patients in various stages of keratoconus were studied, all meeting eligibility criteria for the cross-linking technique. RESULTS The results showed a decrease both in the(More)
