Didactic approach to the management of progressive cornea ectasia associated with keratoconus and refractive surgery. Several CXL treatment modalities and alternate techniques practiced internationally (epi-on, higher fluence-accelerated, and even refractive CXL) in order to halt ectasia, combined in some cases with a customised excimer laser ablation, intracorneal ring segments (ICRS) and/or phakic IOL to facilitate visual rehabilitation.
The participants will share our vast experience of 2 decades, in managing progressive keratoconus and post-LASIK, PRK and Smile ectasia with CXL. Pearls on indications, patient selection, surgical technique and complication management for safe and effective results will be presented and discussed with the participants.
This 1.5 hour Instructional Course was recorded at the 2022 ASCRS Annual Meeting in Washington, DC on April 22-25.
