Cornea Specialist In Indore
The cornea is a transparent structure and the window through which we see the world. It accounts for a major part of the refractive power of the eye and is primarily responsible for focusing light rays on to the retina of the eye.
The diseases which affect the cornea and cause loss of transparency include Corneal Infections, Corneal degenerations, dystrophies, opacification of the cornea caused due to genetic disorders or heredity, and corneal thinning disorders like Keratoconus. Injuries (mechanical trauma/surgery or chemical/acid/alkali burns) are also one of the most common causes of Corneal blindness.
The cornea is an essential eye part that plays a critical role in vision and health. It is the front part of the eye which is normally transparent. The cornea helps to protect the eye from the external environment and also allows the entry of light into the eye. When the cornea becomes damaged or diseased, it can significantly impact vision and a person’s quality of life. Many corneal diseases also cause symptoms like pain, redness, foreign body sensation in the eye, or a white opacity on the cornea. Fortunately, many treatment options are available to patients, including cornea transplant surgery, which can help restore vision and improve eye health.

Treatment of Keratoconus (Conical Cornea)
Keratoconus or the conical cornea is a condition in which the normally round or sphere-shaped cornea acquires a conical shape which can lead to distortion of the image and an increase in the glass power of the eye (astigmatism). In advanced cases, it can lead to severe vision loss as well.
People at risk include those with eye allergies, frequent eye rubbing, and a family history of corneal disease.
An increase in the glass power may be an early indication of developing keratoconus or a conical cornea.
Treatment options include contact lenses, C3R (Collagen Cross Linking) and in advanced cases, cornea transplant surgery (DALK / PKP).

Keratoconus is treated in earlier stage with semi-soft contact lenses, but such lenses would not slow the disease process.
