Keratoconus is a condition in which the cornea, the clear front surface of the eye, will start to thin out causing the cornea to bulge outward. Symptoms usually start around puberty through late teens and will be noticed as blurred vision and or sensitivity to light.
Using a specialized camera, Vision Institute can screen for Keratoconus and see a topographical map of the front surface of your eyes. From there a treatment plan will be discussed. Specialty Scleral lenses can help by smoothing the cornea surface. Corneal Crosslinking is an in-office procedure that helps to stiffen the cornea which can slow or prevent the further progression of this condition.
