Keratoconus is a progressive disease that causes your vision to become distorted. Your cornea develops a cone shape causing the outer lens (cornea) of your eye to show you an unclear image. There are treatments now available for Keratoconus that will give you a more improved view of the images in front of you. Normally it would take several years for this condition to progress, however if you have high risk factor,(ie. history of rubbing eyes) our have a medical condition, such as Diabetes it can accelerated the process.
In the past there was only one main treatment for Keratoconus other than eye glasses, or contact lenses which was corneal transplants. Over the past decade or more technology has improved Keratoconus treatments has advanced, including Keratoconus treatments like INTACS, Holcomb C3-R ® (cornea collagen crosslinking), and even CK. These treatments alone or combine can improve the patients overall vision, and in some cases they have been known to stop the progress of the condition or even reverse the damage done by Keratoconus.
Holcomb C3-R ® Crosslinking System:
The Holcomb C3-R ® or the Corneal Crosslinking treatment strengthens the corneal fibers. This allows for stabilization of vision. If you have a more advanced type of Keratoconus, other treatments might be needed in combination with the Holcomb C3-R ® treatment. The Holcomb C3-R ® heals the eye quickly and efficiently when it comes to Keratoconus.
The Holcomb C3-R ® is done by non-invasive methods. It generally takes around 30 minutes and your experience can be beneficial if done right in the doctors office.
The Holcomb C3-R ® can be done at the same time as other procedures improving the patients quality of vision even more. Compatible procedures include INTACS, CK, and the Visian ICL.
