Here at New York Cornea Consultants, we are proud to have the top Queens keratoconus doctor on our staff, ready and waiting to help our patients with this complicated illness. Keratoconus is a condition that is characterized by a thinning of the cornea. The cornea is normally a generally spherical shape. But for patients with keratoconus, progressive corneal thinning leads to a more of a cone-shaped cornea. This change in shape can seriously impact your vision quality over time. Some symptoms associated with keratoconus include: increased sensitivity to light, problems driving safely at night due to vision, noticing a haloing or ghosting around lights, especially at nighttime, general feelings of eye strain and eye pain, frequent headaches, eye irritation, and frequent need to rub the eyes. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should schedule an appointment with our Queens keratoconus doctor as soon as possible so that we can begin you on an individualized treatment plan that will help you manage this condition. There are a number of treatments for keratoconus that our Queens keratoconus doctor uses regularly with our patients. A popular option is to use contact lenses that are customized and designed for patients with keratoconus. Other possible treatment options include using intacs plastic rings, corneal crosslinking, and corneal transplant surgery.
