How Keratoconus Treatment Works

:

Keratoconus affects each patient differently, and there are a number of treatments that can help depending on the severity of your condition. For some people, prescription glasses or special fitted contact lenses may be all that’s required to help restore your vision and quality of life.

In recent years, a revolutionary keratoconus treatment called corneal collagen cross-linking has proved very effective in stopping the natural progression of keratoconus. Corneal cross-linking works by strengthening  the chemical bonds in your eyes that hold your cornea in place, to stop it from becoming distorted by keratoconus.

In a corneal cross-linking procedure, our eye surgeons use a combination of riboflavin (vitamin B12) eye drops and ultraviolet light to strengthen the cornea and halt the progression of keratoconus. It’s a straightforward and safe procedure that you only need to have once to make a difference.

Other treatments include implantable collamer lenses, corneal rings and corneal transplantation. Everyone is different though, so it’s best to come and speak with our world class eye surgeons to find out which keratoconus treatment is right for you.
