    Quantitative OCT-based Longitudinal Evaluation of Intracorneal Ring Segment Implantation in Keratoconus

    PURPOSE. To characterize the geometrical properties of keratoconic corneas and upon intracorneal ring segments (ICRS) implantation, using custom-developed Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT). METHODS. Ten keratoconic corneas were measured pre and post-ICRS surgery (7, 30, 90 days). Corneal topographic and pachymetric maps were obtained from 3-D images acquired with OCT, provided with custom algorithms for image analysis, distortion correction, and quantification. The 3-D positioning of the ICRS was also estimated longitudinally, relative to the pupil center and iris plane. RESULTS. Pre-operatively, the average corneal radii of curvature were 7.02±0.54 mm (anterior) and 5.40±0.77 mm (posterior ...
