Over the recent years, keratoconus and keratoectasis have become increasingly important diseases in ophthalmic practice due to the increasing number of keratorefractive surgery cases and the availability of new treatment modalities other than corneal transplantation. For both the genetic form of the disease (keratoconus) and the acquired form (keratoectasia), new modalities of diagnosis and treatments have become available, enabling physicians to treat these two ecstatic corneal diseases earlier and effectively, delaying or even avoiding major surgeries such as corneal transplantation.
"Keratoconus and Keratoectasia: Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment "by Dr. Ming Wang and his contributors, represents the first state-of-the-art comprehensive synthesis of the current understanding of the etiology, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of both keratoconus and keratoectasia

- Topographic diagnosis
- Measuring corneal strength - corneal hysteresis
- Corneal epithelial mapping with ultrasound biomicroscopy
