Keratoconus Management at Somerset Eye Care
Keratoconus is a corneal condition that can impact your vision and quality of life, but our team at Somerset Eye Care is here to help with personalized keratoconus treatment. We use cutting-edge technology and specialty contact lenses to help patients manage their condition so that they can always see clearly and comfortably.
What Is Keratoconus?
Keratoconus is an eye condition characterized by the thinning of your eye’s cornea, which is the clear, dome-shaped surface that covers the front of the eye. As the cornea thins and weakens, it begins to bulge outward, distorting vision and leading to increased sensitivity to light. Keratoconus typically necessitates frequent changes in your vision prescription and can lead to other complications, like dry eye disease.
Keratoconus Doesn’t Have to Derail Your Quality of Life
While keratoconus is a challenging condition that’s associated with frequent prescription updates and difficulty wearing traditional contact lenses, our doctors are still able to help you have clear, comfortable vision. Through our comprehensive eye and contact lens exams, we can detect the early signs of the condition and develop a keratoconus treatment plan for your unique needs. These eye exams are crucial, because early intervention is key to maintaining your vision and minimizing any impact it could have on your daily activities.
