We have been able to significantly improve vision in Keratoconus patients and having a complete eye examination by our laser eye doctor experts can diagnose the condition early, making it easier to treat and correct.
Keratoconus is an eye condition in which the shape of the cornea becomes distorted. The cornea is a clear structure that covers the front of the eye and does 85% of the focusing of the light as it passes through the eye. In a healthy eye, the cornea curves like a dome. In an eye with keratoconus, the center of the cornea thins and bulges so that it sags and has a cone shape distorting vision. Keratoconus tends to affect people in their teens or early twenties and may progress for 10-20 years, and then slow or stabilize.
