Like bespoke tailors, ophthalmologists need to be bespoke surgeons who tailor vision in each eye to the highest level possible. We cannot claim to design the best suit using the best technology and tailoring materials, and yet, in our minds, find it “acceptable” to have the suit length within a half-inch to three-quarters of an inch too short or wide.
Thinking outside the cone: Over, above standard approach
All of these cases scenarios, which are an everyday occurrence in my practice, demonstrate my desire to take every patient to emmetropia despite the “so-called” complexity of the cases.
Keratoconus: Thinking outside the cone
In this column, I will describe various keratoconus case scenarios from my referral-based practice—ranging from the highly complex to simple—that can be improved with single or staged techniques that move patients toward emmetropia.

Keratoconus as refractive surgery: Thinking outside the ‘cone’
In this first of a two-part series, Arun C. Gulani, MD, MS, explains how approaching keratoconus as a refractive surgery will change the way both ophthalmologists and patients will approach this condition to bring in a new era of not only relieving but also enhancing the lifestyle of this patient population. In Part 2, Dr. Gulani will share strategies and cases of patients with keratoconus with different case scenarios in action.
