Keratoconus is a non-inflammatory eye condition where the normally round, dome-shaped cornea progressively deteriorates, causing a cone-like growth to develop. This results in significant vision difficulties. This cone shape deflects light as it enters the eye on its way to the light-sensitive retina, causing obstructed vision.
Cathedral Eye Clinic is spearheading the delivery of a relatively non-invasive treatment in Northern Ireland, named CrossLinking, which can effectively stop the deterioration of vision in patients found to have Keratoconus.
How Can Keratoconus be Treated?
Cathedral Eye Clinic has availability of the simple, relatively non-invasive CXL treatments which can effectively stop the deterioration of vision in patients found to have keratoconus.
Who Should Come for Screening?
People between the ages of 12 and 35, whose far vision has deteriorated and glasses do not help or whose astigmatism has increased recently. Those who have relatives with the condition are particularly susceptible.
