Keratoconus Treatment Options
 

Keratoconus, pronounced - KEHR-a-toh-kohn-nus, is a non-inflammatory eye condition in which the normally round dome-shaped cornea progressively thins causing a cone-like bulge to develop. This results in significant visual impairment. The cornea is the clear window of the eye and is responsible for refracting most of the light coming into the eye. Therefore, abnormalities of the cornea severely affect the way we see - making simple tasks, like driving, watching TV or reading a book difficult.


In the earliest stages, keratoconus causes slight blurring and distortion of vision and increased sensitivity to light and some experience glare. These symptoms usually first appear in the late teens and early twenties. Keratoconus may progress for 10-20 years and then slow in its progression. Each eye may be affected differently.

Contact Lenses

Keratoconus can be managed with one of many different contact lens designs. No one design is best for every type of keratoconus. Since each lens design has its own unique characteristics, the practitioner carefully evaluates the needs of the individual situation to find the lens that offers the best combination of visual acuity, comfort and corneal health.

Corneal Collagen Cross Linking with Riboflavin (CCCL or C3R)

Another treatment offered by Dr. Vinay Agrawal for keratoconus is Corneal Collagen Crosslinking with Riboflavin (C3-R), that has been proven to strengthen the weak corneal structure. This treatment has undergone various trials and proven effective in arresting progression of keratoconus and other corneal ectasias for the first time.


 

 

Corneal Ring Corneal Implants

 

One of the newest options available to treat people who have become unable achieve functional vision with contact lenses is Corneal Rings. The goal of Intracorneal rings is to "defer" a corneal transplant and "stabilize" the cornea so that contact lenses or glasses can provide functional vision. Intacs are a natural bridge between functional vision with glasses or contact lenses and a corneal transplant. Learn more about Corneal Rings...

 

 

Corneal Transplant

In keratoconus, a corneal transplant is warranted when the cornea becomes dangerously thin or when one can no longer achieve sufficient visual acuity with contact lenses due to the steepness of the cornea, corneal scaring or contact lens intolerance. Lens intolerance occurs when the steepened irregular cornea can no longer be fit with a contact lens or if the patient can no longer function with contact lenses or be successfully put into Intacs.
