Transient changes in corneal thickness and curvature parameters may provide clinicians with a negative impression on keratoconus progression.
Typical feather-shaped lens opacity may identify keratoconus in patients who do not present with the usual clinical manifestations of the disorder, according to a report.
While reliable measurements were readily obtained by each device, their precision on individual patients was poor.
Clinicians may wish to consider quality of vision factors in addition to visual acuity when fitting these patients with contact lenses.
RGP contacts with base-down prism corrected higher-order aberrations more than standard RGPs in keratoconic patients, a study shows.
Investigators review a grading system for evaluating corneal parameters after corneal crosslinking, depending on the cone location.
The study also demonstrated that the new Belin ABCD staging software is an effective tool for monitoring patients after CXL.
Researchers present a case study of 1 patient with keratoconus who underwent bilateral epithelium-on CXL.
A case series shows the potential damage of postoperative scleral lens wear.
The study suggests relying on topography measurements to identify patients at risk.
A report shows the condition, which results from cyanotic congenital heart disease, can lead to reduced axial velocity, wall shear rate, and other changes in vessel microvasculature.
The ability of the technology to provide astigmatism measurements appears to decrease for patients with worsening disease.
Researchers retrospectively reviewed the charts of patients who were referred for Prosthetic Replacement of the Ocular Surface Ecosystem (PROSE) treatment and fitted for PROSE devices from 2018 to 2020.
Before referring to surgery, consider other options, the presentation suggests.
Researchers also noted a small rise in intraocular pressure for some patients.
A combination of parental consanguinity, positive family history, and eye rubbing are risks for corneal disease.
