Keratoconus

Keratoconus is a degenerative condition that affects the cornea, which is the front window of the eye. If it is not detected early, the causes the cornea to get thinner and bulge outwards into a cone shape. As a result, you may experience blurry vision that keeps getting worse. At Norfolk Family Eye Care in Port Dover, Waterford, and Simcoe, ON, we offer various treatments to prevent keratoconus from progressing and improve your vision.

Diagnosis

When you visit our optometrists, we will discuss your symptoms with you and ask questions about your vision. We will also perform an eye exam and take images of your cornea to confirm if you have keratoconus. If treatment is needed, our eye doctors can recommend the necessary solutions.

Treatment

Treatment for keratoconus depends on the severity of the condition. For mild cases, our optometrists may recommend eyeglasses or contacts. However, for severe cases, we might suggest surgery or a cornea transplant. We can also schedule follow-up appointments once you’ve received treatment to ensure it is effective and monitor your eye health.
