Keratoconus is a chronic non-inflammatory corneal disease characterized by thinning and localized protrusion of the corneal stroma in a conical shape. It often leads to irreversible irregular astigmatism and varying degrees of corrected visual acuity decline.With the rise of femtosecond laser refractive surgery, corneal lenses were discovered as a good biological material. Corneal lens implantation of the cornea can increase the thickness of the cornea and delay the progression of keratoconus disease for further treatment. Currently, convex lenses obtained from myopia SMILE surgery and concave lenses obtained from farsighted SMILE surgery, as well as parallel lenses obtained from donors, can be implanted into the cornea with the aid of femtosecond lasers as lens materials. This article will summarize and discuss the above three lens material implantation methods to provide reference for the selection of keratoconus treatment.
