About the book
Keratoconus is a corneal ectatic disorder that is very far to be completely understood and successfully managed. Thanks to great innovations in different technology fields, physicians now have more options in order to obtain a more precise and earlier diagnosis, such as Scheimpflug camera based device, or corneal biomechanical properties analysis. Some years ago, patients with progressive keratoconus were intended to undergo corneal transplant, and now corneal crosslinking procedure has changed this course, and it is possible to stabilize progression of this disease. Being a fairly new procedure, corneal crosslinking has already changed since its introduction, and it is reasonable to expect further news about it. Even if new devices and procedures are always purposed, it is important to verify them because “new” is not always “better”. Because of that, latest methods need to be methodologically verified.
This book will provide general ophthalmologists, corneal specialists, optometrists and physicians interested in this disease, a complete vision of the latest news regarding the diagnosis and the management of keratoconus.
