PURPOSE To compare the accelerated corneal cross-linking (CXL) protocol and the conventional Dresden protocol in patients with keratoconus in terms of visual acuity, keratometric values, and topographic parameters. METHODS Twenty-eight eyes of 25 patients with primary keratoconus were divided into 2 groups; 15 eyes in group 1 received CXL under the standard Dresden protocol (3 mW/cm for 30 min, dose 5.4 J/cm) and 13 eyes in group 2 were treated with the accelerated protocol (30 mW/cm for 3… CONTINUE READING
