The IJKECD is a peer-reviewed journal covering keratoconus and other ectatic corneal diseases, including pellucid marginal degeneration, Terrien's marginal degeneration, keratoglobus and iatrogenic keratoconus. Studies dealing with
epidemiology, genetics, pathology and corneal biomechanics are welcomed.
The journal covers new diagnostic tools that aid in the diagnosis of keratoconus and ectatic corneal diseases, including their role in refractive surgery.
The journal deals with new treatment modalities, such as collagen corneal cross-linking, intrastromal corneal rings, anterior lamellar keratoplasty, deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty and the applications of femtosecond lasers in
penetrating keratoplasty and corneal surgery. In addition, the journal covers the use of excimer laser in corneal surgery. Special interest is drawn to contact lenses and their use in keratoconus and ectatic corneal diseases.
