Abstract

Purpose: To report refractive, topographic, aberrometric, and tomographic outcomes 24 months after corneal cross-linking (CXL) in patients up to 18 years of age with progressive keratoconus. Design: Prospective, interventional case series. Methods: Forty eyes underwent riboflavin-ultraviolet A-induced CXL. Uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA), best spectacle-corrected visual acuity (BSCVA), sphere and cylinder, topography, aberrometry, tomography, and endothelial cell counts were evaluated at baseline and at 1, 3, 6, 12, and 24 months. Results: Mean logarithm of the minimum angle of resolution baseline UCVA and BSCVA were 0.79 ± 0.21 and 0.39 ± 0.10, respectively. Mean UCVA and BSCVA at 2 years were 0.58 ± 0.18 and 0.20 ± 0.09, respectively. The improvement in UCVA and BSCVA was significant throughout the postoperative follow-up (P
