Welcome to keratoconus Management​​

KERATOCONUS MANAGEMENT​

Keratoconus (KC) is an eye disease in which the central portion of the cornea begins to thin & bulge out. The resulting “cone” shape of the cornea produce a number of unique vision problems including halos, monocular double- vision, ghost images & sensitivity to light.

The various treatment options for keratoconus available at our center are:

1. Corneal Collagen Cross-Linking (C3R/ CXL) :
This is a procedure to strengthen/stiffen the cornea & stop disease progression with the help of UV-A radiation over riboflavin sensitized stromal tissue.

2. Contact Lenses : Rigid gas permeable (RGP) Lenses include:-
– Cornea
– Scleral
– Mini-scleral
Soft contact lenses can be used in early keratoconus cases.

3. Deep Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty (DALK) : The whole cornea, except the descemets membrane & the endothelium are replaced. Chances of rejection in this procedure are minimal as the endothelium is not replaced. It can be done in cases of keratoconus or anterior corneal dystrophies & degenerations.
