Keratoconus Treatment

Processes and Methods

Keratoconus is a condition characterized by progressive thinning and bulging of the cornea, leading to visual impairment. Treatment for keratoconus aims to halt or slow down its progression, improve vision clarity, and enhance corneal health. Here are the key processes involved in keratoconus treatment:


Glasses or Contact Lenses:

In the early stages of keratoconus, glasses or contact lenses can help correct vision problems. Especially in mild to moderate cases, appropriate lenses can improve vision clarity.


Corneal Cross-Linking (CXL):

An effective treatment method to halt the progression of keratoconus is corneal cross-linking (CXL). During this procedure, ultraviolet (UV) light and riboflavin are applied to the cornea, strengthening its structural bonds.


Keratoplasty (Corneal Transplant):

When keratoconus advances or does not respond to other treatments, keratoplasty or corneal transplant may be necessary. In this procedure, damaged or thinning corneal tissue is replaced with a healthy donor cornea.


Intacs:

Intacs are thin, semi-circular rings used to control the progression of keratoconus and reshape the cornea. Implanted within the eye, these rings can help flatten the cornea and improve vision quality.


Regular Check-ups and Follow-ups:

Patients undergoing keratoconus treatment should regularly visit their eye doctor. The condition of the cornea, visual clarity, and the effectiveness of treatment should be periodically assessed.


Lifestyle Changes:

Adopting a healthy lifestyle is important for individuals undergoing keratoconus treatment. Avoiding smoking, maintaining a healthy diet, and using appropriate sunglasses for eye protection are crucial habits to preserve eye health
