    Assessment of Intrastromal Corneal Ring Segment Position With Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography.

    BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE:To examine the exact position of implanted Keraring (Mediphacos, Belo Horizonte, Brazil) segments by high-resolution anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT). PATIENTS AND METHODS:This study included 17 eyes of 13 patients with keratoconus who underwent uneventful intracorneal ring segment implantation with the aid of femtosecond laser. Eyes were evaluated by AS-OCT at the third postoperative month. Distance from the apex of the triangular cross-section of the ring segment to the anterior corneal surface and distances from two basal corners to the posterior corneal surface were measured. RESULTS:Distance from apex to anterior corneal surface (263.1 ...
