METHODS.
This study comprised patients with keratoconus who had ICRS implantation followed 6 months later by pIOL implantation with corneal relaxing incisions. The uncorrected (UDVA) and corrected (CDVA) distance visual acuities and residual refractive errors, analyzed using vector analysis, were recorded preoperatively, 6 months after ICRS implantation, and 6 months after pIOL implantation.

RESULTS.
The study enrolled 40 eyes (31 patients). The mean UDVA (decimal) was 0.11 Snellen ± 0.05 (SD) preoperatively, 0.18 ± 0.14 Snellen 6 months after ICRS implantation (P=.001), and 0.50 ± 0.27 Snellen 6 months after pIOL implantation (P<.0001). The mean CDVA was 0.56 ± 0.23 Snellen, 0.68 ± 0.25 Snellen, and 0.73 ± 0.20 Snellen, respectively (all P<.0001). Six months after pIOL implantation, the efficacy index was 0.88 and the safety index, 1.28. At 6 months, 65% of eyes were within ±1.00 diopter (D) of the desired refraction and 45% were within ±0.50 D. The mean spherical equivalent after pIOL implantation was -1.19 ± 1.33 D.

CONCLUSION
Sequential ICRS and pIOL implantation plus corneal relaxing incisions provided good visual and refractive outcomes, indicating that it is a predictable procedure for refractive correction of keratoconus.
