Course Description

This 2 hour course will provide an overview on the importance of early detection of Keratoconus (KCN), which may lead to improved prognosis and patient outcome. Various diagnostic technologies and data interpretations will be discussed in diagnosing KCN and its progression. Utilizations of such test results in providing clinical guidance on customizing management approaches for each keratoconus patient will also be reviewed.

Recorded during our 2022 Finding Keratoconus Before it Finds You Series 

Lecture Objectives: 

After the presentation and following discussion, the attendee will be able to: 

Apply new knowledge of prevalence, risk factors, and the significance and importance of early diagnosis of Keratoconus and other primary ectatic disorders to aid in keratoconus diagnosis and patient education. Apply new knowledge, clinical protocols, and updates in technology for detecting and monitoring Keratoconus progression. Apply new knowledge for patient education on the quality-of-life impacts of keratoconus and various clinical management options Apply new knowledge for patient education on the importance of disease stabilization in managing keratoconus progression.  Understand the FDA-approved indications for corneal cross-linking in practice  Apply new knowledge and clinical protocols in managing pre- and post- operative corneal crosslinking care.
