Belin MW, Duncan JK. OCT has been extensively utilized to evaluate total epithelial thickness, epithelial asymmetry, and biomechanical factors, which may be used to document progression of keratoconus [19]. Therefore, we used parameters that took several variables into consideration (eg, D-index, index of surface variance, index for height asymmetry, KPI). NLM The enhanced reference surface was not only qualitatively useful in visualizing subtle or early ectatic change, but the elevation difference between a standard BFS and the enhanced reference surface also proved to be highly significant quantitatively in separating normal eyes from those with ectatic change [50].

According to Global Consensus on Keratoconus and Ectatic Diseases (2015), there is no consistent or clear definition of ectasia progression [23]. Clipboard, Search History, and several other advanced features are temporarily unavailable. Similarly, the determination of progression, or the lack of, is paramount to determine when and if to treat and to document treatment efficacy. Past treatments were for late disease and typically never returned the patient to normal visual function.  |  Keratoconus is relatively uncommon with a reported annual incidence of 2 per 100,000 and prevalence of 54.5 per 100,000, though rates vary greatly in different geographic regions [5, 6, 7].

Usually both eyes are affected. He or she may conduct other tests to determine more details regarding the shape of your cornea. Changes to the anterior and posterior BFS taken from the 3.0 mm zone centered on the thinnest point should also be a more sensitive indicator of cone progression. & Borgstrom, M.

Others have used this system with various modification and additions in an attempt to better diagnosis or characterize the severity of disease [21, 22]. He is responsible for development of protocols on keratoconus monitoring and progression criteria and is actively involved in research into the effectiveness of both new and existing treatments for the condition. It is indicated for patients with progressive keratoconus or ectasia because it offers the opportunity to preserve visual function by slowing or halting progression of the condition. eCollection 2019.

Various keratoconus diagnosis, staging, and progression criteria are in clinical use. The concept behind the “Enhanced Reference Surface” is to generate a reference surface that more closely resembles the patient’s own normal portion of the cornea as this will further magnify any existing pathology. Manage cookies/Do not sell my data we use in the preference centre. Ultrasound pachymetry can also be used to measure the thinnest zone on the cornea. Each technician was instructed to acquire three images with an acceptable quality check (machine verification of an acceptable image). In the AK system, the severity of keratoconus is graded from stage 1–4 using spectacle refraction, central keratometry, presence or absence of scarring, and central corneal thickness [20].

To diagnose keratoconus, your eye doctor (ophthalmologist or optometrist) will review your medical and family history and conduct an eye exam. Others have looked at visual acuity, manifest refraction, and central corneal thickness as measures to follow ectatic progression, but these have also been found to be unreliable, and do not correlate well with severity of keratoconus [35–37].

However some progression may be experienced by persons 50 or older. By logistic regression analysis, a keratoconus progression index (KPI) was defined. In this test your eye doctor uses special equipment that measures your eyes to check for vision problems. Comparison of multimetric D index with keratometric, pachymetric, and posterior elevation parameters in diagnosing subclinical keratoconus in fellow eyes of asymmetric keratoconus patients. Each technician imaged each patient three times for each time period for a total of 27 images per patient, 135 images total. A one-sided confidence interval was chosen because progression is indicated by thinning and/or steepening of the anterior and/or posterior corneal surfaces.

Corneal thinning typically occurs inferotemporal as well as central, although superior thinning has also been described [4].

The panel defined progression by a consistent change in at least two of the following parameters: steepening of the anterior corneal surface, steepening of the posterior corneal surface, and thinning and/or thinning or changes in the pachymetric rate of change. For each of these parameters (corneal thickness, ARC, PRC) a decrease would be indicative of progression. 2013;2(3):95–103. The authors describe how modern corneal tomography, including both anterior and posterior elevation and pachymetric data can be used to screen for ectatic progression, and how software programs such as the Enhanced Reference Surface and the Belin-Ambrosio Enhanced Ectasia Display (BAD) can be employed to detect earlier changes. In addition, Koller et al. Methods: Keratoconus typically affects both eyes8, J Ophthalmol. Corneal elevation indices in normal and keratoconic eyes.

Kmax, however, has been acknowledged as a poor parameter for both progression and crosslinking efficacy [31–35]. 2014;8:2277–87. Corneal thickness measurements are typically altered (thinned) after crosslinking, thus limiting its value to document progression as well [41] (Table 1). 7). Keratoconus was deemed to be progressive if there was a subjective deterioration in vision and at least one of the following criteria were met over two consecutive visits: at least one dioptre (D) increase in the Ks value derived from corneal topography or an increase of 1.00 D or more change in refractive astigmatism.
