Keratoconus

Keratoconus occurs when the normally round, dome shaped cornea progressively thins causing a cone-like bulge to develop. The abnormal shape of the keratoconic cornea prevents light entering the eye from being properly focused on the retina for sharp, clear vision. The changes in the cornea’s natural, domed shape often lead to significant distortion and a reduction in vision sharpness (visual acuity). There are two solutions for Keratoconus, INTACS and Crosslinking.

Key Benefits of Keratoconus Solutions:

  • Stabilizes cornea
  • Stops progression of keratoconus
  • Can be combined with other procedures to improve vision
