Care for the keratoconic patient has evolved incredibly rapidly over the past 10 years. With vastly more options for spectacles, contact lenses, and surgery, many practitioners are finding themselves puzzled over which strategies to employ at which stage of disease. The authors first present a literature-supported and clinically-based staging classification. Then, spectacle, contact lens, and surgical considerations for each stage are discussed with case-based examples. Following this discussion, attendees should understand a clear model for providing state of the art care to their keratoconic patients.
