Keratoconus Surgery

Keratoconus begins with abnormal structure in the center of the cornea. Advanced disease requires full-thickness corneal transplantation to regain functional vision.


Full-Thickness Corneal Transplantation

  • Invasive ocular surgery
  • Lengthy recovery period for most patients
  • Moderate-to-high risk of post-operative complications
  • Permanent lifestyle changes for many patients

Corneal Cross-Linking

  • Non-invasive procedure
  • Use photodynamic therapy
  • Goal is to stabilize the corneal structure
