Keratoconus is a progressive eye disease in which the normally round cornea thins and begins to bulge into a cone-like shape. This cone shape deflects light as it enters the eye on its way to the light-sensitive retina, causing distorted vision.
As you will read below there are three types of procedures that help save the cornea from requiring a corneal transplant.
There are a few different procedures you can qualify for to halt the progression of Keratoconus depending on the progressive stages of the disease.
Corneal Cross-linking is a non invasive procedure in which cornea hardening eye drops are placed in the eye. The patient is then placed under an UV light. The combination of drops and UV light strengthens the Cornea causing the progression of Keratoconus to seize.
Intacs surgery is a procedure in which the doctor makes a small incision in your cornea and places two crescent-shaped plastic rings at the outer edge. The rings flatten your cornea and change the way light rays focus on your retina.
ICL is an implantable Lens for correcting vision. The lens is place between the cornea and the iris. ICL used with higher prescriptions and Keratoconus patients as an alternative to LASIK vision correction.
