MyoRing was implanted using a femtosecond laser to correct a high irregular corneal astigmatism after penetrating keratoplasty and high myopia. Femtosecond laser-assisted intrastromal MyoRing implantation allows to increase its sphericity, regularity and at the same time to correct high myopia. The creation of an additional “framework” in the corneal transplant by the MyoRing increased its biomechanical properties and prevented regression of the obtained refractive result. Femtosecond laser-assisted intrastromal MyoRing implantation allows to correct irregular astigmatism after penetrating keratoplasty and high myopia.
