The chair-side reference provides general information only and may not be applicable to atypical cases. Corneal ectatic and thinning disorders can be sight-threatening. The addition of imaging technologies, such as corneal topography and/or OCT, has enabled earlier diagnosis and improved ability to monitor progression.
Grading scales exist for more common ectatic diseases such as keratoconus; however, there has not been consensus on a grading scale.
