Navigating an eye condition like keratoconus can be overwhelming, but our dedicated team is always here to help. We’re constantly refining our approaches and embracing the latest in eye care technology. This ensures that the treatments and assessments you receive are not only up-to-date but also tailored to bring you the best in eye health.

What is Keratoconus?

The cornea is a dome-shaped, clear structure that sits on top of the iris and pupil and focuses light into your eye. Keratoconus thins the cornea, causing it to bulge and become cone shaped, affecting how much light enters the eye and where it is focused. This causes symptoms like blurred vision, difficulty reading or driving, and increased light sensitivity.

Keratoconus is increasingly thought to be caused by an imbalance in corneal enzymes, which weakens the central corneal tissue. Genetics are a major reason patients develop the condition, but poorly fit contact lenses, UV light exposure, and excessive eye rubbing can also cause keratoconus.

Tailored Diagnosis & Treatment

We use advanced diagnostic tech during our eye exams to detect even the most subtle signs of keratoconus. If we do find signs of it, we’ll create a customized treatment plan based on the severity of your symptoms. Mild cases are usually treated with contact lenses or specialty glasses, while some severe cases may require a corneal transplant. Our eye doctors will work together with you to find a treatment solution that will grant you clear, comfortable vision.
