BCLA Webinar: Management of Keratoconus: What have we learned and how our practice has changed?
The development in technology has allowed for early recognition and a more accurate diagnosis of keratoconus. This has led to the detection of an increasingly higher incidence and prevalence of keratoconus. The early detection of the disease is crucial for controlling its progression and determining treatment options, which have shown to increase quality of life in keratoconic patients. Contemporary advancements in contact lens designs and materials have expanded the options available to treat keratoconus and provide maximum visual performance. This session will discuss the comprehensive management of keratoconus and the treatment options available to both control the progression of the disease and to optimize of vision.
