Corneal topography and Orbscan are popular devices used in the detection of keratoconus. Keratoconus can be diagnosed by several methods such as Scheimpflug imaging, wavefront analysis, artemis VHF digital ultrasound epithelial thickness profiles and ocular response analyzer. Best treatment methods for keratoconus including anterior lamellar keratoplasty, topographic guided photorefractive keratectomy, intraocular lens implantation, femtosecond laser corneal transplants and collagen corneal cross-linking and surgical options such as intracorneal rings, phakic intraocular lenses are discussed.
