PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of collagen crosslinking (CXL) on femtosecond laser channel creation for intrastromal corneal ring segments (ICRS) in keratoconic eyes. SETTING Magrabi Eye Hospital, Cairo, Egypt. DESIGN Comparative case series. METHODS Eyes with grade II or III keratoconus were treated by CXL. After 6 months, channel creation was performed using an IntraLase FS-60 femtosecond laser. The eyes were randomly divided into 3 groups. The default femtosecond machine power setting… CONTINUE READING
