Have been diagnosed with a Keratoconus Eye Condition. There are many treatment options that can relieve the symptoms you and your doctor can discuss. Typically in the early stages glasses are worn to help improve the patients vision. However as a the disease worsens the use of glasses to correct vision isn’t enough. At that stage it is usually recommended use of special contact lenses. 

keratoconus eye conditionThe special contact lenses will help smooth out the cornea so vision can improve. This is done when the tear fluid fills gaps that a Keratoconus Eye Condition causes, between the cornea and the lens. If the lenses are not properly removed and replaced.  They can create more damage to the cornea and hinder the vision more. Once contact lens become uncomfortable for patients. Many opt for corneal implants (INTACS) surgery or insertable contact lenses surgery.

Many patients prefer the insertable contact lens and they require less care and are easier to maintain. There is a new procedure C3-R (Corneal Collagen Crosslinking) which involves one at a time application of a special solution to the eye.  Supervised by an eye doctor, it’s showing promise on stopping the progression of the disease. Many patients are apt to have this treatment to avoid the need for surgery and stop the loss of vision. 

Lasting Effects of Keratoconus Eye Condition:

Diagnoses of the disease is usually in adolescents however it seems to worsen the most in the 20’s and 30’s. A Keratoconus eye condition is unpredictable and can vary from patient to patient. How fast or slow the disease progresses will depend on the patient. When the disease progresses to both eyes it is difficult for the patient to live normally. It is harder for the patient to drive or even read. The implants are a good relief at this stage.  However, in some severe cases a cornea transplant is needed to relieve the patients. Though this condition is a serious disease if you are seen regularly the disease can be managed and treated. If left untreated it can severely impair your vision.  So make sure to seek a doctor immediately if you feel you may suffer from this condition, and protect your sight!
