Performing corneal crosslinking under local anaesthesia in patients with Down syndrome

Purpose To report on the ability to perform corneal crosslinking (CXL) under local anaesthesia for the treatment of keratoconus in patients with Down syndrome. Methods Nine eyes of seven patients with both keratoconus and Down syndrome were scheduled for an epithelium-off CXL procedure under local anaesthesia. Exclusion criteria were a corneal thickness under 400 µm and the...

Predictors for treatment outcomes after corneal crosslinking for keratoconus: a validation study

Previous research suggested that baseline corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA) and maximum keratometry (Kmax) are the predictors for effectiveness of corneal crosslinking (CXL) for keratoconus. The aim of this study was to validate the previously determined predictors in a new treatment cohort. A prospective cohort of 112 eyes in 90 consecutive patients was used to validate...
