Keratoconus is an illness of both eyes in which the outer transparent layer of the eye becomes thinner. As a result of which it unable to bear the intra ocular pressure and starts protruding outwards in the shape of a cone.
Keratoconus is a potentially blinding condition. Our cornea is made of special protein called collagen. In keratoconus the amount of collagen in cornea decreases and the inter collagen bonds also decrease. As a result of which whole of the cornea becomes very weak. Particularly at the tip of the cone.

Early keratoconus is very difficult to diagnose. If the patient reports of any of the symptoms of keratoconus mentioned above than eye doctor gets his corneal topography, pachymetry and pentacam scan done. These tests tell us the amount of keratoconus and help us in planning the treatment.

Contact Lens:- Early keratoconus can be treated with RGP Lenses. how ever as the keratoconus increases the tolerance to RGP Lenses decreases and in advanced keratoconus it is very difficult to fit a RGP Lens. But as a rule RGP Lens gives better vision than specs in keratoconus patients.
C3R:- C3R is revolutionary new treatment of keratoconus where the eye is treated with ultraviolet light and vitamin B2. This increases the collagen protein interbonds by many times. The cornea becomes 300% stronger. Keratoconus stops increasing immediately. How ever the loss of vision that has already occurred can not be reversed. For that patient has to wear glasses or lenses
INTACS (Intra Stromal Ring Segment):- These are special ring segments made of plastic that are put on side of cornea. They mechanically pull the cornea sideways and the cone inwards. In combination with C3R they are very effective in treating keratoconus.
Corneal Transplant:- When the keratoconus is so advanced that all the previous mentioned treatment fail or the cornea perforates than the only treatment left is corneal Transplant
