Keratoconus is a progressive disease than can significantly impair vision, but help is available. There are several keratoconus treatment options that your eye doctor can use to manage each stage of the disease to improve your vision and give you a better quality of life. For mild cases of the disease, contacts and glasses may be the only interventions that you need. As the disease progresses, INTACS corneal implants can help to reshape the cornea. Collagen crosslinking has shown progress in slowing the disease progression, while corneal transplant is helpful in advanced cases. Explore your treatment options in this infographic from Mack Eye Center.
