Corneal refractive surgery combined with simultaneous corneal crosslinking: indications, protocols and clinical outcomes.

Summary of "Corneal refractive surgery combined with simultaneous corneal crosslinking: indications, protocols and clinical outcomes."

Corneal refractive surgery is one of the most common approaches for correction of refractive errors. Combined corneal refractive surgery and corneal crosslinking (CXL) has been proposed as a method to achieve better refractive stability and to prevent iatrogenic corneal ectasia. However, there are concerns regarding its indications, surgical safety, standardization of protocols, and long-term effect on corneal tissue. This review article aims to discuss the current knowledge and recent updates on combination of CXL and refractive surgery. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Asymmetries in the topography and refractive index of the corneal surface that affect visual acuity.

New blood vessels originating from the corneal veins and extending from the limbus into the adjacent CORNEAL STROMA. Neovascularization in the superficial and/or deep corneal stroma is a sequel to numerous inflammatory diseases of the ocular anterior segment, such as TRACHOMA, viral interstitial KERATITIS, microbial KERATOCONJUNCTIVITIS, and the immune response elicited by CORNEAL TRANSPLANTATION.

Loss of CORNEAL ENDOTHELIUM usually following intraocular surgery (e.g., cataract surgery) or due to FUCHS' ENDOTHELIAL DYSTROPHY; ANGLE-CLOSURE GLAUCOMA; IRITIS; or aging.

Surgical techniques on the CORNEA employing LASERS, especially for reshaping the CORNEA to correct REFRACTIVE ERRORS.

A type of refractive surgery of the CORNEA to correct MYOPIA and ASTIGMATISM. An EXCIMER LASER is used directly on the surface of the EYE to remove some of the CORNEAL EPITHELIUM thus reshaping the anterior curvature of the cornea.
