Keratoconus Management
Keratoconus is a medical condition that causes your cornea to gradually thin over time, which affects your vision and overall comfort. Thinning cornea can cause irregular astigmatism due to the internal pressure of the eye, which results in loss of vision. Keratoconus occurs in roughly 0.05% of the population, and typically begins in puberty and progressing into the 30s. If you have any doubts that you may suffer from this condition, or have already been diagnosed contact us to discuss your treatment options. The beginning stages of can be treated with glasses, specialty contact lens fittings or corneal cross-linking. However, as the disease advances corneal transplantation may be required to restore the vision. We are currently treating many patients that have various levels of keratoconus. Our doctors use both modern and proven techniques and technologies to manage it effectively.
