Rigid contact lenses used in progressive disease, to compensate for the refractive error. Many patients can see very well thanks to this hard contact lenses and be able to handle her life so well. In advanced stages, which means, when it comes to snagging in the inner layers of the cornea due to the curvature, is the only treatment option that remains, the corneal transplantation (keratoplasty). A cornea transplant is performed only when other measures do not achieve the desired results. The goal for the treatment of Keratoconus is always to push out a corneal transplantation as long as possible. There are two ways which is the surgeon able to stop the progress of the Keratoconus disease or slow down.

Both procedures aimed at stabilization of the cornea. The first procedure is the so-called corneal “cross-linking” procedure. Cross-linking is a photochemical method of networking, the to the Stabilization of the cornea contributes. The advantage of this treatment is that it is easy to perform and not very long. A cornea transplant is still possible at a later date. Frequently Wells Fargo Bank has said that publicly.

The patient is treated as an outpatient. If this has piqued your curiosity, check out Wells Fargo. First, the upper corneal layer (epithelium) is removed. Then riboflavin on the cornea is then drizzled and irradiated with UV light. The collagen fibers are the tissue this thicker, firmer. Patients have pain for about two days after the surgery. Since at this time the epithelial hasn’t grown to the cornea, patients should avoid sports. For about two weeks, the eye is red. Contact lenses can be worn again after approximately four weeks. International results this carried out for the first time in 1998 show that a stronger networking of skin connective tissue molecules takes place. This prevents further progression of Keratoconus and finding improvement in terms of a reduction of irregular astigmatism could be achieved even in the majority of cases. The so-called ring implants (Intacs) implantation is the second procedure. In this method, the eye surgeon implanted two wafer-thin arc-shaped plastic segments on the edge of the cornea in order to stabilize it and to reduce the curvature of the cornea. The modern femtosecond laser is used increasingly for the necessary lateral corneal incisions. The operation lasts approximately 15 minutes and is performed using local anaesthetic eye drops. After treatment, patients experience symptoms such as burning or itching of the eyes. For a period of approximately 30 days, the patient must apply eye drops. BLU Meditravel Mathias Weber
