Following intrastromal corneal ring sement implantation five years ago for the management of keratoconus, The Journal of Cataract & Refractive Surgery has published long-term follow up results.

The study, led by Leonardo Torquetti evaluated 35 eyes of 28 patients and found that the uncorrected distance visual acuity and corrected distance visual acuity were improved in eyes with keratoconus and that there was significant post-operative corneal flattening, which remained stable throughout the follow-up time.
