Transcript

  • 1.  In 1963, scientists found that the initial changes of Keratoconus were related to break down of the corneas basement membrane like conical shape.  They found that this cause happens due to thin of cornea and its shape changes as a conical.
  • 2.  From the above figure investigator conclude that enzyme activity of Keratoconus increase gradually compare to normal eye.  In this case cornea is responsible for 80% of the absorption of ultraviolet B(UVB) light that enters the eye.  Ultraviolet create free oxygen radicals, high energy molecules, which if unchecked can damage tissue.
  • 3. Pre-op Post-op
  • 4.  Keratoconus corneas produce enzyme which is unique not found in normal corneas.  The main goal to focus on corneas which is reduce something like cone which is different from normal corneas.
  • 5.  Axial:- Distance to reference point not curves.  Tangential:-Local or true curvature best of shape.
  • 6.  Treatment is categories into two parts conservative and surgical.  Now Surgical removing central nodular scars by shaving the corneal surface may improve contact lens and decrease the rate of associated corneal abrations.  But conservative treatment take place without any operation and intervention.
  • 7.  Placement of Intacs using manual dissection technique appears to be efficacious treatment modality for keratoconus.  Most patients achieve better spectacle corrected visual acuity with concurrent decrease in astigmatism.
