Keratoconus Treatment: A Tailored Approach

Keratoconus, a condition that weakens and thins the cornea, can significantly impact vision.

At the Contact Lens Institute of Nevada, a common question patients ask is: “What’s the best treatment for keratoconus?”

Our Keratoconus Treatments:

Here’s a breakdown of the key treatment options:

  • Corneal Cross-Linking: For many patients, the primary goal is to halt the progression of keratoconus. This is where corneal cross-linking comes in. This innovative procedure strengthens the corneal collagen bonds, effectively stabilizing the condition.
  • Specialty Contact Lenses: Once the cornea is stabilized, achieving clear vision becomes the focus. Specialty contact lenses play a crucial role in correcting vision for keratoconus patients.
  • Custom Scleral Lenses: The Contact Lens Institute of Nevada leverages advanced technology to create custom scleral lenses. These lenses map the entire corneal surface, resulting in a perfect fit for each patient’s unique eye shape and prescription. Dr. Woo highlights the success of scleral lenses, with over 90% of their patients benefiting from their exceptional comfort and vision correction capabilities.

Alternative Options:

It’s important to note that scleral lenses aren’t the only solution.

Depending on the individual case, other specialty contact lens options like custom soft lenses, gas permeable lenses, and hybrid lenses may be suitable.

Finding the Right Fit:

If you suspect you have keratoconus, scheduling a consultation with an eye care professional specializing in keratoconus treatment is essential.

They can assess your specific condition, discuss treatment options like corneal cross-linking and various contact lenses, and develop a personalized plan to address your vision needs and goals.
