Abstract

Purpose:

The aim of this study was to report 2 cases with topographic keratoconus progression despite stability for a long-term period after corneal collagen crosslinking (CXL).

Methods:

This is a case report.

Results:

Two patients with progressive keratoconus underwent CXL treatment. Four and 5 years postoperatively, a topographic examination revealed an increase in the keratometric values indicating keratoconus progression.

Conclusions:

Post-CXL, topographic keratoconus progression may occur several years after, despite stability for a long-term period.
