Genetics plays an important part. Certain genes inherited trough your parents express abnormal proteins. These lead to production of weak collagen which is the principal building block of the fibers of the Cornea. 

Epithelium off CXL – Corneal collagen cross linkage

Environmental factors may play a factor in triggering the progression of the weakening of the collagen fibers of the Cornea. The inflammation causes a person to rub their eyes. The rubbing may also push the bulging cornea up improving the vision.

“But please do not rub your eyes. They can weaken the cornea.” Keratoconus Treatment Pro Dr. K

Constant rubbing of the cornea can cause more inflammation. This inflammation may attack the collagen fibres of the cornea and further deteriorate the corneal shape. Some Keratoconus experts have opined that even hard contact lens can have detrimental side effects from constant rubbing against the bulging cornea. This rubbing can even cause scars. That means your vision could be permanently decreased.

How do Intacs for Keratoconus Work

That’s just one of the diagnostic tools to detect Keratoconus. The red color is indication of protrusion of the cornea.. It means the red colored area is very steep or highly curved and pushed forward.

When you visit a doctor for eye glasses they may not perform these advanced tests. You may be diagnosed with only astigmatism. The Best Keratoconus Doctors recommend that all kids around puberty should have a color map exam. Especially if there is high astigmatism or frequent change of glasses.

If you have a family history of Keratoconus the top experts say you should have these exams to screen for keratoconus eye disease. If you are a keratoconus sufferer, than your immediate family like brother and sister should undergo tests to detect this corneal disease.

Intacs corneal ring segments help decrease the asymmetric bulge of the cornea. These PMMA plastic segments help stretch the cornea. Hmm, a little difficult to comprehend?

Lets say we played a tough game of tennis . Sweaty shirt. Put it into the washer and dryer. Tired so forgot to fold. Next morning it is wrinkled. The wrinkles are elevations of the shirt. Its as if the shirt is bulging in that area. We put an iron to stretch the wrinkle and the profusion is history. Intacs also stretch the wrinkled center of the cornea. Keratoconus experts can sometimes see these wrinkles on slit lamp examination.

Intacs ring segments can be done at any age. If you are a teenager reading this, you may be a candidate. What if you are someone in their fifties? Intacs for keratoconus treatment is still a good choice. Intacs placement can also be combined with corneal collagen cross linking. It has been succefuly done in conjugation with (ICL) Phakic Intraocular collamer lens, PIE or presbyopic Implant in eye.

  Keratoconus Expert Explains Cornea Collagen Cross Linking.

A European eye doctor invented the cross linking procedure for the strengthening of the cornea. Its a very interesting procedure. There are various theories on how exactly it works. The most important thing to remember is that corneal cross linkage or CXL works to make the cornea stiffer.

There are different options in cross linking. These can be divided into two. The first is how the riboflavin is delivered into the cornea. Secondly there are variations in delivery of the UV radiation. The UV light is delivered to activate the riboflavin.

  • Cross linkage of the cornea should be offered to all detected with Keratoconus. The sooner progression of keratoconus is halted the better it is. There is more effect of treatment in teenagers. After 45 years of age the effectiveness is less.
  • CXL can be performed as early as 10 years of age. The parents of young kids are scared to have treatment performed on their children. It is fruitful to understand that cross linking of a keratoconus cornea can SAVE VISION.
  • A keratoconus Specialist performs CCC (c3) or Corneal Collagen Cross linking. An expert in keratoconus management understands the nuances of treating  with chemicals. The safety of the cornea and eye is paramount.
