Early onset: The vast majority of cases present between 12 and 20 years of age. Onset may also occur at birth and up to 51 years of age.2
Keratoconus care starts with optometry
The iDetect KC program makes advanced topography more accessible than ever before. For a fraction of the price, optometrists can bring this essential diagnostic tool into their practice so they can:
- Quickly and easily take the lead in identifying keratoconus earlier
- Contribute to scientific advancements through the iDetect KC data registry
- Offer FDA-approved treatments to manage, slow, or halt progressive keratoconus
- Provide lifelong care and expertise for patients

Earlier keratoconus detection is key
Evidence suggests more patients could benefit from earlier identification of their keratoconus.
of keratoconus presents through optometry.1
A paradigm shift in diagnostic accuracy and keratoconus management
With access to advanced topography, optometrists can have greater confidence in their assessments, a simplified diagnostic and treatment journey, and more control over the patient experience.
Bring advanced topography into your practice
The iDetect KC program
Glaukos and Topcon have partnered to offer optometrists the advanced technology of the Topcon CA-800 topographer at a lower cost of entry.
The Topcon CA-800 Topographer
Key features and benefits6:
- Placido-based topography delivers complete anterior corneal surface evaluation for early detection
- Advanced keratoconus probability index indicates likelihood of keratoconus through analysis of apical curvature, apical gradient, and symmetry of the cornea
- Easy serial follow-up on keratoconus and keratoconus-like patterns
- Diagnostic capabilities for various common ocular pathologies, including detailed dry eye measurements
A win for the keratoconus community
The iDetect KC data registry makes it easy to leave a lasting impact on the future of keratoconus care by uploading data from:
- Potential keratoconus patients
- Post-op iLink™ patients
