Keratoconus Treatment In Myrtle Beach, Conway, and Socastee
Poor vision that cannot be corrected fully with eyeglasses or regular contact lenses may indicate a condition known as conical cornea or Keratoconus. A rare condition, Keratoconus primarily affects people in their early 20's.
If you have mild to moderate Keratoconus in Myrtle Beach, SC, the best treatment is rigid gas permeable contact lenses, which provide a smooth surface in front of the cornea, making clear vision possible.
Keratoconus can sometimes result from Lasik or RK corrective surgeries. This is referred to as post-Lasik or post-RK ectasia.
