Definition: Progressive pumping (ectasia) of the cornea that typically begins in adolescence, causing a progressive loss of vision.

  1. In mild cases with no progression, checks are made or vision is corrected with semi-rigid contact lenses. In cases where the cornea is increasingly deformed, it is necessary further surgery: crosslinking (3a), intrastromal rings (3b) or DALK (3c).
