What are the costs of keratoconus treatment?

The diagnosis of keratoconus occurs when the cornea of the eye becomes thin and starts to slowly bulge outward into a cone shape. The cornea is the part of the eye that is clear and dome shaped. This situation within the eye creates blurred vision, some sensitivity to light or glare.

Most of the time keratoconus affects both eyes and is usually diagnoses in young people, around the age of 10 to 25 years.

As this situation develops over time the use of special glasses or soft contact lens become less successful as a treatment. Often, if further contact lenses are not successful, a corneal transplant may be indicated to resolve the problem.

Available Surgical Treatment for Keratoconus

* Cornea Transplant, also known as keratoplasty
*Lamellar Keratoplasty  
*Penetrating Keratoplasty  
*A deep anterior lamellar Keratoplasty (DALK)
 

Advantages for keratoconus surgical treatment:

  • Faster visual recovery time usually in a few months
  • Only the thin inner layer of the cornea is replaced and over 90% of the patient's own cornea remains behind. This leads to the use of less stitches and overall greater structural integrity.
  • Decreased episodes of graft rejection as there is less foreign tissue used during the surgery as compared to standard corneal transplant surgery.
