Keratoconus is a progressive condition that often leaves the patient feeling uncertain and worried about their treatment options. Over the past 10 years more and more treatment options have become available for those with Keratoconus. Many of the new treatments for Keratoconus have been successful when used by themselves. However some of the treatments are quite beneficial when used in combination with each other.
Below are some of the treatments that can be used in combination with other treatments and how they help improve your Keratoconus.
The Holcomb C3-R ® :
The Holcomb C3-R ® is a treatment used to stabilize Keratoconus. The procedure is also called the Cornea Collegan Crosslinking with Riboflavin. This procedure requires the use of UV lights and a vitamin called Riboflavin which strengthens the fibers of the cornea and slows and in many cases halts progression. In addition, by flattening the cornea patients report less distorted vision.
The Holcomb C3-R ® is a great treatment to use in combination with other treatments for Keratoconus. Often many patients combine both INACS and The Holcomb C3-R ® for better results.
INTACS are tiny lenses that are placed in the layers of the cornea to provide support to the eye without causing complications. The INTACS need no maintenance once they are placed in the cornea and can remain a lifetime. The procedure is quick – about 7 minutes per eye.
INTACS work well in combination with other treatments such as the Holcomb C3-R ®. The Holcomb C3-R ® helps to lock in the flattening from the INTACS. Additionally most patients who get this combination can often reduce their use of glasses or contact lenses greatly. INTACS can be easily removed if needed when you have a change in prescription or for any other reason.
If you are looking for great treatments to help your Keratoconus there are many options out there. The treatments above can help you improve your Keratoconus and reduce your need for glasses and contacts giving you back your natural quality of vision.
