Keratoconus Book Excerpt:

The book covers various aspects of the management of keratoconus, which is a leading cause of visual impairment in young adults. It focuses on the epidemiology and risk factors of keratoconus with a special focus on Southeast Asia. Keratoconus affects the quality of vision, thereby affecting the quality of life. While most patients present with defective vision, many are diagnosed accidentally during screening for refractive surgery. The book covers the varied epidemiology of keratoconus across different parts of the world. It discusses many systemic and ocular diseases associated with keratoconus. The book covers the newer diagnostic techniques and various treatment procedures for keratoconus, helping in diagnosing keratoconus in the early stages and closely watching the progression. It discusses various contact lenses to improve vision quality; widely used collagen crosslinking, and its various modifications for halting the progression. It also explains the surgical approach for keratoconus, such as penetrating keratoplasty, lamellar keratoplasty and other lens-assisted procedures. The book is relevant for general ophthalmologists and cornea specialists.

Keratoconus Book Excerpt:

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.

Keratoconus Book Excerpt:

Keratoconus is a progressive disease of the cornea which can lead to blindness as irregular astigmatism increases. The study of the ectasic diseases of the cornea has evolved considerably in the last several years and this has brought new tools for the keratoconus diagnosis and treatment. A better understanding of treatment options can enhance visual rehabilitation and prevent blindness in these patients. This book provides the reader deeply and updated information on keratoconus treatment. Written by experts from worldwide, the book presents clinical, genetic, metabolic and biomechanical aspects in the development of the disease, the proper intervention time, the imaging tests used for diagnosis and keratoconus monitoring, as well as details on new surgical procedures (as contact lenses and laser technologies) using modern methods with wide technological application. Two pioneers in the keratoconus treatment bring their valuable contribution in specific chapters. Ophthalmologists will find a practical and useful approach of new technologies to get the best results for their patients. This book will really impact changes in the therapeutic conduct of corneal surgeons.

Keratoconus Keratoectasia Book Excerpt:

Over the recent years, keratoconus and keratoectasis have become increasingly important diseases in ophthalmic practice due to the increasing number of keratorefractive surgery cases and the availability of new treatment modalities other than corneal transplantation. For both the genetic form of the disease (keratoconus) and the acquired form (keratoectasia), new modalities of diagnosis and treatments have become available, enabling physicians to treat these two ecstatic corneal diseases earlier and effectively, delaying or even avoiding major surgeries such as corneal transplantation. This book is a concise, well-illustrated and clinically indispensable guide for treating these two important corneal diseases.

Quick Guide to the Management of Keratoconus Book Excerpt:

This book, designed for ophthalmologists and particularly for refractive surgeons, aims to develop practical and clinical skills in readers so that they are able to make the right decisions in managing keratoconus. There are four main chapters. The first is devoted to diagnosis and describes the clinical signs, the appearances on microscopy, and the significance of corneal hysteresis and corneal topography. Classifications and patterns of keratoconus are then presented, and the author offers his own new classification of topographic patterns. The third chapter addresses the management of the disease in detail. Both non-interventional and interventional approaches are discussed with due attention to contraindications and complications. In addition, a novel classification of management parameters is suggested, and a systematic approach to management, formulated. In the final chapter this approach is applied to nine cases that serve as clinical examples.
