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.

I believe keratoconus is viral. My eyes improve a lot when I take antiviral supplements like raw garlic. I saw a big improvement with monolaurin.

Omega 3 fatty acids. I have had this for 35 years. I've taken a high dose daily of Omega 3's and last year, my doctor was amazed because my eyes had improved dramatically. I can wear glasses now and correct my vision. I am sticking with this for sure!!

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?

Hi Ravee,

My son is 12 years old and using glasses since last one year (-3.25 in both eyes) and recently went for regular checkup and doctor has prescribed higher power (-4.0 in both eyes). He also did Corneal topography and that is when it was found that his left is in red zone whereas the right eye is fine. Corneal thickness is also good in both the eyes. So the doctor suggested us to get the corneal topography done once again after six months to confirm if it is keratoconus or not. If it proves to be keratoconus then he said there is a non-invasive treatment called Collagen Crosslinking. But I am bit afraid of those medical procedures and searching for natural ways to cure it and found your post.

I request you to provide some more details of your family member's current condition and how it was before following the protocol you mentioned etc. Any additional information would be very helpful. Please let me know if I can get it in touch with your directly as I want to clarify few things before I start the protocol for my son. Thanks, Giri

I just read your comment and would like to know how you came up with this protocol? Are you a doctor? My brother has Keratocones and wears the contact lens but has a hard time putting them in, he does not like anything close to his eye. I am a huge reader of Alternative medicine but also like to do my due dilegence before I start a protocol.

Thank you, Laura

Hi I am so sorry about that. I am also facing the same problem Had C3R.And power has increased. Now. However many doctors suggested for rgp, rose k lenses. But one doctor suggested me to continue with same power also suggested not to go for high power glasses they will be strainfull. And told me if not comfortable with contact lenses.Better not to use that Am checking for homeopathy or auyervedc treatment .

I have had it for 13 years now vision keeps getting worse, the lenses helped me see, but sensitivity to light is bad, no natural cure has helped, I am waiting for a transplant for a year now. Go get the lenses. Good luck and God bless.

I used contact lenses for 10 years and if you not comfortable with this lenses you can used new hybrid lenses that have soft material and you must use them to prevent lost your vision more.

Hi Ravee,

I have keratoconus and was advised to have surgery. In the weeks leading up to surgery I took supplements to try to regain as much of my vision as possible before the procedures. It didn't seem to work, but I didn't have much time to work with as I feared I would continue losing my vision. I had C3-R, intacs and CK, as advised by Dr. Boxer Wachler in Los Angeles. He's actually the one who performed my surgeries. It has been over a year since I've had all 3 procedures and my vision isn't significantly better, though my keratoconus looks to have stabilized. I wish I could say I'm healed, but that's not the case.

I experience mental anguish on a daily basis because I feel as though I missed my chance to get my 20/20 vision back, and wasted a ton of money in the process. I'm looking for alternative methods to rectify my vision, and am open to vitamins and eastern healing methods. My fear is that I have squandered my chance at healing away by getting intacs, which I presume would keep the current shape of my eyes in tact even if the vitamins or alternative methods start to heal me, thus negating the potential to be healed. Have you encountered a case like mine before? Do you think I'm still a candidate for healing, even having undergone all of the procedures?

Thanks, J

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!

I was diagnosed with Keratoconus in March 2015 (age 24). I've been visiting doctor regularly since then and couple of weeks back my doctor suggested me to undergo C3 treatment. The power in my right eye is -4.5 and left is -1.5. My eyes have grown very sensitive to bright light sources. I'm planning to heal naturally. Could you please elaborate in detail the process. It would be of great help to me.

I have keratoconus as well. My physician recommended this procedure also informed me of cost (which is not covered under medical insurance) and I they also informed me that it is extremely painful for the first few days. they also told me that it would not reverse any damage done by the disease but would prevent my vision from getting any worse. Needless to say I have yet to have that done. its refered to as Cornial Cross Linking.
