Help is available: Keratoconus is a progressive condition which can cause a deterioration in vision, but the progression can be stopped with a procedure called corneal crosslinking. We perform this in-office procedure routinely as part of the CXLUSA clinical trial. In addition, intacs, RGP contact lenses, or corneal transplantation can all help to reshape the cornea and restore vision.
