Understanding Keratoconus

Keratoconus is a progressive eye condition characterized by thinning and bulging of the cornea, leading to distorted vision and visual impairment. Early diagnosis and timely intervention are essential for preserving vision and preventing further deterioration. At Manjunatha Nethralaya Hospital, we offer a range of advanced treatment options tailored to address the unique needs of patients with keratoconus.

What Causes Keratoconus?

Research suggests the weakening of the corneal tissue that leads to keratoconus may be due to an imbalance of enzymes within the cornea. This imbalance makes the cornea more susceptible to oxidation from compounds called free radicals which causes it to weaken and bulge forward. Risk factors for oxidative damage and weakening of the cornea include a genetic predispo

Signs and Symptoms of Keratoconus

As the cornea becomes more irregular in shape it causes a progressive increase in nearsightedness and irregular astigmatism creating problems with distorted and blurred vision. Other symptoms include glare and light sensitivity and frequent eyeglass prescription changes.

Keratoconus Treatment

In very early and mild Keratoconus vision with eyeglasses or soft contact lenses may remain acceptable. But as the disease progresses and the cornea thins and becomes increasingly more irregular in shape glasses or soft contacts no longer provide adequate vision correction. Treatments for moderate and advanced Keratoconus.

Corneal Transplant:

The last remedy is a cornea transplant. The best option for this is a Deep Anterior Lamellar Keratoplasty (DALK) Advanced Keratoconus which preserves the very inner layer of the cornea leading to a more successful outcome. If this transplant option is not able to be done then a penetrating keratoplasty (complete thickness transplant/ PK)is completed. Even after a successful transplant some patients will still require glasses or contact lenses to improve their vision.
