What is it about?
To establish a consensus in the Egyptian literature on the management of keratoconus (KC) and cataract in the same eye.
Why is it important?
An Egyptian research team, including 42 KC experts, met to develop a protocol for the management of KC in Egypt. In three scientific meetings, the Egyptian Protocol for Keratoconus (EPK) group focused on the diagnosis and treatment of KC in Egypt. In panels and debates, they discussed procedures to treat coexisting cataract and KC in the same eye. Many experts in the EPK group agreed on the term KC-Plus to refer to KC and cataract in the same eye. The experts then participated in Delphi-style rounds of questionnaires to define this new term.
