Abstract
To evaluate the combined effect of conductive keratoplasty (CK) followed by corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL) in 2 patients with keratoconus.
CK spots were applied on the flatter side of the cornea followed by CXL using riboflavin and UV-A light.
Immediately after CK, a significant corneal topographic improvement was observed. The CK effect regressed 3 months postoperatively and remained unchanged until the sixth postoperative month in both patients.
Corneal remodeling with CK in patients with keratoconus seems to have a temporary effect despite the subsequent application of CXL.
