Keratoconus, Ectasia Treatment

إقرأ عن علاج القرنية المخروطية باللغة العربية

In the past few years, several new techniques and technologies have been developed for the proper and timely treatment of keratoconus, and corneal ectasia occuriring after performing lVC for the non-suitable patient

Until recently, patients have worn contact lenses unless they needed a cornea transplant – there was no choice and no way of stopping keratoconus from getting worse. Dr Khalil is offering all the revolutionary new approaches in a tailored manner giving each individual of his patients with keratoconus the best .treatment suitable for his individual case.

RGP Contact Lenses, Rose-K lenses

Contact lenses do not change the keratoconus, but cover the protrusion on the cornea so neutralising it. Normal vision is restored to all except advanced cases. Lifelong wear is necessary.

Collagen cross linking

A transformation in keratoconus treatment that stops it from getting worse

Collagen cross linking is an important new treatment that stops keratoconus from getting worse. Cross linking increases the strength of the collagen in keratoconic corneas by 3–4 times. It sis carried out with some of the best equipment available today.

A high-tech new treatment to improve vision

Laser may now be used to treat keratoconus by using a cornea topographer to guide the laser, or what is called topography-guided treatment. This is an important development.


Rings Implantation inside the Cornea

An established treatment  to reduce excessive curvature in advanced keratoconus

These are small pieces of plastic inserted into a channel created in the cornea to stretch it and bring it back to near its original configuration. They can’t be felt and require no maintenance. They are normally invisible except on close inspection when they look like a contact lens on the eye

Lens Implantation (Phakic IOLs)

ICL for the correction of myopic astigmatism in keratoconus
An effective treatment after cornea shape is normalised

These are lenses put over the normally present lenses. They work together with the eye’s natural lens which is not removed. In a normal cornea it is capable of correcting even the most severe short sight and astigmatism. In keratoconus it is most effective after collagen cross linking, laser or rings implantation have been done to stabilise the cornea and normalise its shape as much as possible

Corneal Transplantation

corneal transplantation, keratoplasty
A long-established treatment for the most severe cases

The centre of the patient’s own cornea is completely removed and replaced by another corneal transplant. The transplant is sutured in place of the conical cornea. This is the longest-established treatment for severe keratoconus.

Medicine is a science and art and above all a direct human relation between a patient and his doctor. All information in this site are intended to support not to replace the direct physician-patient relation.
