In brief: Alter eye power

Corneal rings are implanted arcs of plastic into the inner layers of the cornea.
They cause a change in the refraction which neutralizes moderate degrees of myopia. They also have some use in moderate keratoconus to improve the vision and some feel to slow the progression. Your corneal specialist ophthalmologist can help with this.
