VisionTECH: Keratoconus Tech with Dr. John Gelles

A paradigm shift in Keratoconus management is upon us. Thanks to new diagnostic technologies and the availability of Corneal Collagen Cross-Linking, we can now achieve early detection and management of Keratoconus before the onset of significant vision symptoms. On this episode of VisionTech we discuss on the latest technologies in the diagnosis and management of Keratoconus. Joining us for this discussion is friend of the podcast, Dr. John Gelles, OD.
Dr. Gelles is the director of the specialty contact lens division at the Cornea and Laser Eye Institute-Hersh Vision Group and the CLEI Center for Keratoconus in Teaneck, New Jersey.
