    Assessment of Corneal Stiffness in Keratoconus After Crosslinking by Corvis ST and OCT.

    Background and Rationale: Keratoconus is a progressive corneal degeneration resulting from noninflammatory thinning of the corneal stroma. Visual impairment typically commences in adolescence and progresses thereafter. Further increase in myopia, irregular astigmatism, and subepithelial scarring leads to visual impairment. Treatment modalities are based on refractive correction with spectacles or contact lenses to correct astigmatism and restore visual acuity. Such modalities do not stop ectatic progression and further visual deterioration, which ultimately necessitates corneal transplantation in 10% to 20% of patients. Corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL) has emerged as a promising techniq;ue to slow or halt the progression of keratoconus. CXL ...
