In all cases, the goal remains restoring a patient’s vision using the most modern approaches. With the latest announcement, the practice confirms its commitment to providing Dubai residents with the highest quality eye care available today.
Affecting approximately 50 people in every 100,000, keratoconus is a condition in which the corneal structure isn’t strong enough to maintain its round shape. This outer layer of the eye then bulges out like a cone, giving the condition its name.
Once the condition has been diagnosed using modern corneal topography, Eye Consultants now takes a staged approach to treatment. More mild cases can be corrected with glasses, while rigid gas contact lenses may be recommended if glasses prove ineffective.
As keratoconus is often caused by the weakening of collagen fibers, the practice now also offers collagen cross linking treatments to prevent the condition from progressing. The implant of a ring, known as an Intacs, could also flatten the shape of the cornea and restore vision.
In cases where other treatments have not been successful, Eye Consultants may suggest a partial cornea transplant. This safe approach has a 90% success rate and reduces incidences of rejection. These surgical procedures are often completed in an hour or less, and patients can return home on the same day.
