Experiencing Disturbances in Night Vision With Keratoconus

If your experiencing disturbances in your vision during the day since your diagnosis of Keratoconus, we can only imagine how your night vision is doing. Unfortunately loss of night vision is a symptom of Keratoconus, having it and dealing with it however are two very different things.

Since 1999 there has been new advances in assistance those with Keratoconus. In the past, patients merely waited for the Keratoconus to get too bad for contacts or glasses. A painful and invasive procedure called a Corneal Transplant, was the only option until INTACS for Keratoconus was developed in 1999 and Holcomb C3-R ® (cornea collagen crosslinking) was developed in 2003.

Modern medicine and several innovative procedures have helped those who suffer from Keratoconus improve their chances of not having a corneal transplant to help deal with their worsening symptoms.

Below are some tips to assist you with your night vision:

Drive in well lite areas at all times: As your vision goes it will be harder to see, you may not know that your vision is getting worse right away so driving in well lite areas (good street lights) regularly will help if you are struggling.

Drive with a buddy: If you are not very certain on how your vision has been effected at night, take a buddy with you. Someone you trust can help you and work with you in deciding if you should be on the road at night, or tell you what problems you maybe experiencing while driving.

Ask you doctor: as your Keratoconus progresses asking your doctor if it is safe for you to be on the road should be a typical exam question. This will help you determine where you are in your condition and if you need assistance with your night driving.

Finding out the degree of vision loss when you have Keratoconus is important. Asking your doctor these important questions will help you determine whether its safe for you to drive could save your life and the lives of others. The frustration of coping with Keratoconus is hard on all who suffer, your not alone. Finding a Keratoconus support group can help you cope with your loss of vision, and improve the overall quality of your life.
