International Journal of Keratoconus and Ectatic Corneal Diseases
Abstract
 
 

ABSTRACT

The first accurate description of keratoconus is reported to be the treatise on conical cornea published by Dr John Nottingham in London, in 1854. Interestingly, despite the limitations on the knowledge related to anatomy, biochemistry, and physiology of the eye, Nottingham’s seminal work described in detail many aspects of the epidemiology, clinical presentation, and treatment of corneal ectatic diseases are still accurate today.1
