Free Primer Available – The Patient’s Guide to Keratoconus
We also have a primer on keratoconus, “The Patient’s Guide to Keratoconus“. It answers most of the common questions patients ask and the most important things for them to know. We will continue to update it as technology and standards of care continue to evolve. Some of the items covered are
- How is keratoconus treated
- What are the risks/benefits of surgery vs contact lenses
- What treatment options are available
- When is surgery recommended
What is Keratoconus?
Keratoconus involves a progressive thinning of the cornea. It is estimated that 1 in 2000 people have keratoconus; however, some estimates are as high as 1 in 500. In most cases, successful keratoconus treatment is accomplished with specially designed contact lenses. At Total Eye Care, we specialize in providing care to these patients.
