Keratoconus: When, Why and Why Not: A Step by Step Systematic Approach

by Mazen M Sinjab

This book, Keratoconus: When, Why and Why Not, deals with keratoconus. Keratoconus and other ectatic corneal disorders are common diseases; their prevalence increases day by day due to the huge development in diagnostic and screening tools. Management of these diseases has also developed; new approaches have come in the picture either to halt the progression or to rehabilitate the cornea, or to achieve both. The way that this book deals with this topic is systematic and academic. First, it mentions the classifications of the diseases in detail, then goes through treatment modalities in a classified and listed manner. After that, it builds up a mesh in a flow chart manner and suggests a checklist together with a three-step approach. The checklist and the three-step approach are finally applied in nine cases taken as examples and studied following the systematic approach.
