Keratoconus is a serious problem for patients, which is accompanied by a decrease in visual functions and the progression of ectasia. The original bandage therapeutic-optical keratoplasty technique (intracorneal implantation of a wide allotransplant formed by femtolaser) allows long-term preservation of high visual function and management of keratectasia in a patient with keratoconus and corneal ectasia when routine methods (ICRS, cross-linking) are ineffective. Formation of the bandage led to improvement of visual function and cease of ectasia progression.
