Finding New Vision for Keratoconus Patients

The Holcomb C3-R ®

For those with Keratoconus daily activities can be difficult. Keratoconus is a progressive condition that causes the cornea of the eye to become irregular and bulge out instead of circular. Over time the irregular shape causes distortions in the vision field making it harder for the patient to see. However there are several new advancements in technology that allow the patients vision to become more clear. Below is one that is changing the lives of thousands each day.

The Holcomb C3-R ®

(Corneal Collagen Cross-Linking With Riboflavin)

For those of you who are unclear what the Holcomb C3-R ® is here is a quick tutorial. For those of you who have Keratoconus the Holcomb C-3 R ® is a treatment that uses a special solution that contains a vitamin that our body makes. The solution is placed by a dropper in the eye of the patient and then activated with UV lights. This process takes about 30 minutes in your doctors office.

Over a period of months after the treatment the cornea strengthens, providing the patient with more stable vision. As the cornea strengthens it can reshape and this helps reduce some of the visual distortions. Most importantly this treatment helps reduce the chance of further progression.

There have been thousands who have received this procedure and all of them have had peace of mind that their vision is now stable. Generally the treatment is only needed one time, however some have needed two. It will stabilize the condition and in some cases it has reversed some of the damage of Keratoconus.
