Why is Keratoconous screening important before surgery?

Keratoconus screening is most important for any eye surgery and crucial for refractive surgery. These topographers provide clinicians with essential information about the patient’s cornea (Epithelium thickness, total corneal thickness, steep point, etc.).

The proper evaluation of Keratoconus can help prevent complications associated with ectasia before and after corneal surgery and will determine the suitable option for refractive surgery (Laser, IOL).
