Keratoconus treatment varies with disease progression.
In the early stages of keratoconus, you might achieve symptom relief after an eye exam and new glasses or contact lens prescription.
As keratoconus progresses, regular contact lenses may not fit properly anymore. Dr. Aimee Noll, OD, offers scleral specialty lenses that cover a larger portion of your eye. They vault over the misshapen corneas without displacing the lenses.
If you have severe keratoconus, or if your disease doesn’t respond to scleral lenses, Dr. Noll might recommend a treatment like collagen cross-linking. This treatment uses special riboflavin eye drops and ultraviolet light to help you rebuild collagen fibers in your corneas.
In the most severe cases of keratoconus, you might need corneal transplant surgery. But, if you get early diagnosis and manage your keratoconus effectively as it progresses, you can potentially avoid surgery.
Dr. Noll’s here to help you maximize your vision at every stage of keratoconus.
