Non-graft surgical management of keratoconus can be an effective approach to halt disease progression and improve vision. This approach also avoids the risks associated with more invasive corneal grafts. A surgeon may choose to use a combination of intrastromal corneal ring segments, toric implantable collamer lenses, and/or topographic-guided photorefractive keratectomy, with corneal cross-linking, depending on the individual case, to achieve the best long-term therapeutic effect.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
1. Understand the benefits of non-graft surgical management of keratoconus,
2. Realise the risks associated with corneal grafts,
3. Understand the procedures of corneal cross-linking, intrastromal corneal ring segments, toric implantable collamer lenses, and topographic-guided photorefractive keratectomy, and
4. Be aware of how and when these modalities may be used in combination to achieve optimal management of keratoconus.
