Figures 11 and 12
There are always cases in which surgeons should not maintain a low threshold to perform surgical acrobatics. Refraction is the most important driving force in the quest for emmetropia. This patient showcases that concept. This patient was referred to me after breakage of his Ferrara rings (Ferrara Ophthalmics); these rings had been implanted outside of the US. The refractive examination showed that, despite the appearance of the rings, the patient was still best corrected to emmetropia. Because the previous surgeon had done an excellent job, I opted to laser the cornea and correct the astigmatism to reach emmetropia.
