PURPOSE To assess intraoperative and postoperative complications, visual symptoms, and patient satisfaction after implantation of intrastromal corneal ring segments (ICRS, KeraVision, Inc.) for the correction of myopia and to demonstrate the reversibility and adjustability of refractive corrections with this method. SETTING Twelve European investigational sites. METHODS Patients with myopia of -1.0 to -6.0 diopters (D) were assigned to receive 1 of 5 ICRS thicknesses (0.25, 0.30, 0.35, 0.40… CONTINUE READING
