What is Keratoconus?
Keratoconus is a disease of the eye that causes gradual weakening and thinning of the cornea. As a result, this can cause visual disturbances such as glare, halos, and overall poor vision. It is a progressive disease that tends to get worse over time.
We are currently enrolling patients in an FDA Clinical trial for Transepithelial (Epi-On) Cross-Linking. This treatment has been used internationally for over 15 years to prevent the progression of Keratoconus. Dr. Goodman has performed over 500 cases of Epi-On Cross-Linking and is an expert in the treatment of corneal ectasia.
The procedure combines Riboflavin eye drops along with the application of ultraviolet light to create a chemical reaction with the intent of strengthening the bonds within the cornea and halting the progression of keratoconus.
