Keratoconus is a condition in which the cornea expands and forms a conical shape. When discovered early, C3R treatment can help stabilize the condition, and corneal transplantation procedures can aid in later stages.
Keratoconus is a frequent bilateral corneal disease that affects more than one out of every 1000 persons. The illness usually begins in youth or early adulthood.
What method is used to detect it?
An ophthalmologist can diagnose keratoconus with a standard slit-lamp examination, especially if the illness is progressed, but early keratoconus can only be recognized with corneal topography.
