COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Keratoconus is a progressive corneal ectasia that can lead to serious acuity loss and potential blindness, but eyecare providers are well-equipped to prevent this irreversible vision loss. Masterful management starts with accurate diagnosis, moves to surgical treatments to halt progression, and finishes with optical and surgical visual rehabilitation. *Please note that this was recorded during a live webinar that was presented on October 27, 2020.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
