Keratoconus Treatment

Currently there are several treatments that can help people with keratoconus see better. Some of them are listed below.

  1. Rigid Contact Lens – can allow a patient to obtain better vision
  1. Scleral Contact Lens – can allow a patient to obtain better vision
  1. Intacs Procedure – implantable bands are inserted into the cornea. May still require a contact lens to see better
  1. Collagen Cross-Linking – currently, this is not FDA approved but is pending review. This treatment uses lasers and eye drops may prevent further cone formation.
  1. Corneal Transplant – this is where another person’s cornea (deceased donor) is transplanted onto a patient with keratoconus

DALK – Deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty - this procedure is where the front and middle layers of the cornea are transplanted. This procedure has pros/cons compared to the transitional cornea transplant. The patient should talk to their cornea specialist about this.
