Textbook on Keratoconus introduces the latest developments and techniques for the treatment of keratoconus. The book begins with an introduction to the epidemiology, genetics and pathology of the condition, followed by detailed sections on its diagnosis and treatment. With contributions from numerous international ophthalmic experts, the text examines new surgical techniques such as intracorneal rings, phakic intraocular lenses, topographic guided photorefractive keratectomy, femtosecond laser corneal implants and collagen corneal cross-linking.

As a degenerative disorder of the eye, keratoconus can cause substantial distortion of vision, with multiple images, streaking, and sensitivity to light all reported by patients. Keratoconus: Recent Advances in Diagnosis and Treatment updates ophthalmologists about the innovations that have occurred within the last decade, discussing the diagnostic imaging techniques that have been developed for keratoconus diagnosis, understanding of how examination techniques are related to the evolution of keratoconus, and how to indicate the different therapeutic tools that have been created for keratoconus over the last several years. Additionally, fundamentals for new diagnostic elements, based on the mathematical, physical and biomechanical data are analyzed in depth for a better understanding of the essential diagnostic steps for the clinician to guide patients towards the most adequate therapeutic tool in the case. Modern keratoplasty techniques, assisted by femtosecond lasers or other devices, are also covered and these techniques, along with the emerging conservative treatments, have added to more precise control of the evolution of the disease.

In recent years, keratoconus and keratoectasia have become increasingly important ophthalmic diseases due to the increasing number of keratorefractive surgeries being performed, the subsequent rising number of complications, and the availability of new treatment modalities for keratoconus and keratoectasia other than corneal transplantation. For both the genetic form of the disease (keratoconus) and the acquired form (keratoectasia), new modalities of diagnosis and treatment have enabled physicians to manage and treat these diseases earlier and more effectively, which can delay or even prevent major surgeries. Keratoconus and Keratoectasia: Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment by Dr. Ming Wang, along with over 40 contributors, represents the first state-of-the-art, comprehensive synthesis of the current understanding of the etiology, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of keratoconus and keratoectasia. Diagnostic Modalities Include: - Topographic diagnosis – placido disc and elevational mapping analysis - Posterior corneal analysis, three-point touch method and FFKC criteria 2009 - Corneal pachymetry mapping and progression analysis - Statistical analysis packages for KC - New imaging technologies for the cornea including OCT - Topographic corneal irregularity analysis for premium IOLs - Measuring corneal strength – corneal hysteresis - Corneal epithelial mapping with ultrasound biomicroscopy - Wavefront analysis in keratoconus - Infrared light image screening – a new screening tool for keratoconus Treatments Include: - Non-surgical treatment with contact lenses - Ocular surface treatment - Lamellar and penetrating keratoplasty - Excimer laser surface treatment - Topography-guided excimer laser treatment - Wavefront-guided excimer laser treatment - Intacs intracorneal segment - UV-cross linking - Combination treatment of cross-linking, Intacs and excimer laser ablation - Future treatment Keratoconus and Keratoectasia: Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment is a concise, well-illustrated and clinically indispensable guide for treating these two important ophthalmic diseases and is a must-have for all ophthalmologists, optometrists, residents, fellows, and medical students.

This book presents new technologies which are available now for the rehabilitation of visual acuity in patients suffering from keratoconusand for arresting the progression of this frustrating disease. All these current treatment options in differing combinations aim to improve the quality of life of the patients and although successful, they are causing confusion for the ophthalmologists; what procedure to do and when? How to perform? Which combination of treatments to choose? Controversies in the Management of Keratoconusprovidesthe widely used treatment options for keratoconus including collagen corneal cross –linking (CXL) covering all the available techniques, intrastromal corneal ring segments (ICRS) , phakic intra-ocular lenses (IOLs), photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) combined or not with CXL penetrating keratoplasty (PK) and deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty ( DALK). Each treatment is addressed by more than one author with different points of view in order to present the various approaches, the logic behind them and the most relevant clinical data available.A chapter by the editor tries to put some light on how to navigate among these controversies. This book will be of interest to trainees as well as the specialized ophthalmologists.
