Early keratoconic corneal changes can start even before the age of 10 and those that are at risk are mostly not detected until the condition is moderately advanced. The only way to pick these patients up early is to routinely screen for keratoconus in the young population at their routine eye examinations and it could be as easy as using an autorefractor-topographer. Hear more about the detection and management of keratoconus as Michelle Hanratty talks to Optometrist, Yahya Vali and Consultant Ophthalmologist, Damian Lake.
