    Synopsis:
    Keratoconus diagnosis and its management is complex. Appropriate diagnosis, assessment, and treatment can allow a patient to achieve excellent vision performance and function normally in life.

    Inappropriate care can result in poor vision function, chronic discomfort, physiological compromise and perhaps a faster road towards invasive surgical intervention (which may not have been necessary).

    This course will review the most contemporary concepts in the treatment of patients with keratoconus and other corneal ectasias. Today early diagnosis coupled with new treatment strategies can not only optimize vision but can also prevent progression to advanced disease for patient with kertatoectasia.

    The presenter will share both experience in managing thousands of patients with ectasia as well as outcomes of the most current state of science in this field.
