Abstract

Case Report

 

Extreme long axial length is a rare condition characterised by keratoconus (KC) disease. The KC investigation is frequently focused on corneal topography. Contact lens prescription is a successful approach to restore patients’ vision by creating a new refractive surface. We herein describe a case of KC with a long axial length. The patient presents a reduced vision due to KC as well as under-correction of axial myopia. This case report highlights the importance of biometry investigation in KC cases when an optimum vision is not achieved with contact lens prescription.
