Keratoconus Book Review:

As a degenerative disorder of the eye, keratoconus can cause substantial distortion of vision, with multiple images, streaking, and sensitivity to light all reported by patients. Keratoconus: Recent Advances in Diagnosis and Treatment updates ophthalmologists about the innovations that have occurred within the last decade, discussing the diagnostic imaging techniques that have been developed for keratoconus diagnosis, understanding of how examination techniques are related to the evolution of keratoconus, and how to indicate the different therapeutic tools that have been created for keratoconus over the last several years. Additionally, fundamentals for new diagnostic elements, based on the mathematical, physical and biomechanical data are analyzed in depth for a better understanding of the essential diagnostic steps for the clinician to guide patients towards the most adequate therapeutic tool in the case. Modern keratoplasty techniques, assisted by femtosecond lasers or other devices, are also covered and these techniques, along with the emerging conservative treatments, have added to more precise control of the evolution of the disease.

Mastery of Holcomb C3 R Crosslinking for Keratoconus Other Disorders For Patients and Physicians Book Review:

Keratoconus is degeneration of the structure of the cornea. The cornea is the clear tissue covering the front of the eye. In keratoconus, the shape of the cornea slowly changes from round to conical (PubMed Health). In the early stages, keratoconus can be corrected with the use of lenses, but in the later stages, surgery is the only option. Holcomb C3-R® is a non-surgical technique that involves placing drops of the vitamin Riboflavin into the eye and using a UV light to activate them. The drops strengthen the fibres of the cornea and over time, preserve sight (American Keratoconus Association). This book is a concise guide to the technique of Holcomb C3-R® to treat keratoconus. Authored by the inventor of the procedure, Brian S Boxer Wachler, the text is based on his first hand clinical experience and explains the history and basic science of cross linking, the development and naming of the technique, its uses and complications, and first patient results. Key points Concise guide to technique of Holcomb C3-R® to treat keratoconus Authored by inventor of the technique and based on clinical experience Includes more than 60 full colour images and illustrations

Modern Management of Keratoconus Book Review:

This is the much needed guide for ophthalmologists and patients who want to treat and understand about keratoconus a non-inflammatory, degenerative disease that compromises the structural integrity of the collagen matrix within the corneal stroma. The hallmark characteristic is the development of a localized, cone-shaped estasia, bulge or hernia that is accompanied by thinning of the stroma in the area of the cone. This leads to increased irregular astigmatism which cannot be easily corrected and causes retinal image blur and poor visual acuity. This book brings a new understanding to treat this disorder. Previously hard contacts and cornea transplant used to be the only option to treat keratoconus but now a variety of options are available to both stabilize the disease and improve the eyesight. This is the most comprehensive publication on the latest advances in keratoconu treatments. It covers to define keratoconus and its causes and diagnose with clinical signs, corneal topography devices, and keratoconus after refractive surgery treatment such as C3-R, Intacs, Ferrara Rings, CK and penetrating keratoplasty, contact lenses, improving in corrected vision with vision ICL, Venisyse and PRK. This book provides a comprehensive list of scientific references from pre-reviewed journals. For opthalmologists and optometrists, these references are important for augmenting their fund of knowledge and helpful in understanding the background for keratoconus treatments.

Keratoconus Keratoectasia Book Review:

In recent years, keratoconus and keratoectasia have become increasingly important ophthalmic diseases due to the increasing number of keratorefractive surgeries being performed, the subsequent rising number of complications, and the availability of new treatment modalities for keratoconus and keratoectasia other than corneal transplantation. For both the genetic form of the disease (keratoconus) and the acquired form (keratoectasia), new modalities of diagnosis and treatment have enabled physicians to manage and treat these diseases earlier and more effectively, which can delay or even prevent major surgeries. Keratoconus and Keratoectasia: Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment by Dr. Ming Wang, along with over 40 contributors, represents the first state-of-the-art, comprehensive synthesis of the current understanding of the etiology, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of keratoconus and keratoectasia. Diagnostic Modalities Include: - Topographic diagnosis – placido disc and elevational mapping analysis - Posterior corneal analysis, three-point touch method and FFKC criteria 2009 - Corneal pachymetry mapping and progression analysis - Statistical analysis packages for KC - New imaging technologies for the cornea including OCT - Topographic corneal irregularity analysis for premium IOLs - Measuring corneal strength – corneal hysteresis - Corneal epithelial mapping with ultrasound biomicroscopy - Wavefront analysis in keratoconus - Infrared light image screening – a new screening tool for keratoconus Treatments Include: - Non-surgical treatment with contact lenses - Ocular surface treatment - Lamellar and penetrating keratoplasty - Excimer laser surface treatment - Topography-guided excimer laser treatment - Wavefront-guided excimer laser treatment - Intacs intracorneal segment - UV-cross linking - Combination treatment of cross-linking, Intacs and excimer laser ablation - Future treatment Keratoconus and Keratoectasia: Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment is a concise, well-illustrated and clinically indispensable guide for treating these two important ophthalmic diseases and is a must-have for all ophthalmologists, optometrists, residents, fellows, and medical students.

Quick Guide to the Management of Keratoconus Book Review:

This book, designed for ophthalmologists and particularly for refractive surgeons, aims to develop practical and clinical skills in readers so that they are able to make the right decisions in managing keratoconus. There are four main chapters. The first is devoted to diagnosis and describes the clinical signs, the appearances on microscopy, and the significance of corneal hysteresis and corneal topography. Classifications and patterns of keratoconus are then presented, and the author offers his own new classification of topographic patterns. The third chapter addresses the management of the disease in detail. Both non-interventional and interventional approaches are discussed with due attention to contraindications and complications. In addition, a novel classification of management parameters is suggested, and a systematic approach to management, formulated. In the final chapter this approach is applied to nine cases that serve as clinical examples.

Keratoconus and the Latest Methods of Treatment Book Review:

This literature review will summarize the latest treatment options for keratoconus. Keratoconus is a bilateral corneal phenomenon in which steeping and thinning of the corneal apex occurs. The progression varies from case to case and is asymmetric between the two eyes. This condition has been documented for many years but there is yet to be a cure, only management options. In the mind forms the patient may be asymptomatic but in the severe forms corneal transplantation may be needed. Conventional treatment options such as soft contacts, rigid gas permeable contacts, and newer options like collagen-cross linking, corneal ring segment inserts (Intacts), hybrid contacts an its combination will be investigated in the treatment and management keratoconus. Studies in the latest fields all show promise in retarding the progression in keratoconus. The criteria for the patient selection, the results, and the advantages and disadvantages of each method will be analyzed to determine the efficacy and its potential in future treatment.
