|Purpose: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of corneal collagen crosslinking (CXL) for the treatment of corneal ectasia after laser refractive surgery. Design: Retrospective review of post-LASIK ectasia patients referred to and treated at Chinese PLA General Hospital. Method: 12 patients (16 eyes; mean age, 39.7±12.6 years) underwent epithelium-off CXL with follow-up ranging from 12-32 months. Best spectacle-corrected visual acuity (BSCVA), simulated keratometry and corneal topography indices were measured with a rotating Scheimpflug camera (Pentacam, Oculus). Comparisons between baseline measurements and postoperative outcomes were performed using paired t test analysis. Results: At last follow-up, 15 of 16 eyes showed no keratometric deterioration. Central corneal thickness was not significantly altered. No major postoperative complications were observed. Conclusions: Corneal collagen crosslinking was effective at stabilizing the progression of ectasia after refractive surgery.|
