Abstract

Keratoconus is emerging as a new subspecialty in ophthalmology. The literature is booming with publications on the topic as we have better understanding of the pathophysiology, treatment and prognosis of the disease over the past two decades. Advances in diagnostic tools as well as genuine increase in prevalence have shifted perspective of the disease from being a rare one. Early diagnosis is of public health interest as early treatment arrests progression. With the view to encourage research, increase awareness and to reflect the evolution of knowledge related to keratoconus, the European Journal of Ophthalmology has dedicate a special section on keratoconus in its journal.
