Keratoconus Remedies

Last Modified on Mar 10, 2015

Few individuals can accurately answer the question of what is keratoconus. However, the issue is fairly straightforward. Keratoconus occurs as the cornea things and gradually bulges outward forming a cone shape. Characterized by blurred vision and sensitivity, keratoconus typically affects both eyes and most commonly occurs in individuals between the ages of 10 and 25. The condition often develops and progresses slowly over a period of ten years or more.

The experienced signs and symptoms of keratoconus may differ over time as the condition progresses. Nonetheless, common symptoms include blurred or distorted vision, heightened sensitivity to light or glare, issues with night vision, multiple changes in eye prescription and sudden worsening or clouding of the vision. A sudden change in the vision pattern may result from the rupture of the cornea that causes a buildup of fluid in the cornea.

The cause of keratoconus is not known; however, several possible contributing factors have been identified. Factors associated with keratoconus may include vigorous or frequent rubbing of the eyes, comorbid eye conditions including retinitis pigmentosa and retinopathy, a combination of several disorders including enzyme abnormalities and genetic factors and wearing contact lenses for several years.

Natural Keratoconus Treatment

Most cases of keratoconus are treated with glasses or corrective lenses; however, if the condition progresses, a cornea transplant may be required. Some natural keratoconus treatment may be used to slow the progression of and reverse the onset of the condition. Omega-3 fatty acids are an important part of eye health and can be supplemented to treat keratoconus. Additional keratoconus treatment includes supplementing vitamin B, vitamin D2 and vitamin K2. Also, maintaining a healthy, balanced diet that monitors and limits the intake of carbs can prevent further development of the condition. Bilberry and lutein also support overall eye health and can support treatment of keratoconus.

I have undergone C3R procedure last year. My vision has improved a lot but the number has continuously gotten worse. My left eye is now -6.50 from -2.50 and right eye is -4.50 from -1.50. My doctor had prescribed me RPG hard contact lenses.

I feel bad about this and I am looking for some natural and permanent solution.

Nidhi what about Ayurveda? You reside in India, how come you don't use ayurveda and Siddha medicine? From an eastern point of view, ain't all disease an imbalance within one's energy system? Why not try an adapted diet to your energy type and personality? What do you think?

I hear that Dr Boxer-Walchler in Los Angeles uses riboflavin on the eye under UV lighting which strengthens the outer lens of the eye. Anybody had this done?

First, sorry for my english,

I've done Cross-linking treatment ( riboflavin + UV ) which is a very common treatment for Keratoconus in France.

Each case is different, but for me, it didn't work, my KC is still evolutive, maybe slower, but it's not a real cure, it's just fixing your KC like it is.

i don't want to do a graft, it's why I choose Cross-linking, but if you are looking for a real curative solution ... I'm afraid this is not ... But maybe for you it could work!

Bon courage!
