Detailed clinical assessment of corneal biomechanics has the potential to revolutionize the ophthalmic industry through enabling quicker and more proficient diagnosis of corneal disease, safer and more effective surgical treatments, and the provision of customized and optimized care. Despite these wide‑ranging benefits, and an outstanding clinical need, the provision of technology capable of the assessment of corneal biomechanics in the clinic is still in its infancy. While laboratory‑based technologies have progressed
significantly over the past decade, there remain significant gaps in our knowledge regarding corneal biomechanics and how they relate to shape and function, and how they change in disease and after surgical intervention. Here, we discuss the importance, relevance, and challenges associated with the assessment
of corneal biomechanics and review the techniques currently available and underdevelopment in both the laboratory and the clinic
