Keratoconus is a non-inflammatory, usually bilateral and progressive, irregular corneal eruption. In the central and paracentical part, the cornea becomes thinner and forms an irregular cone. Keratoconus usually begins in adolescence or early adulthood and progresses slowly, but at any moment its progress may stop. Most often, both eyes are damaged at different times. Vision is deteriorating due to progressive myopia and astigmatism, the progression of the keratoconus is characterized by poor vision, which is difficult to improve with glasses.Coronal Strengthening Procedure (RSP) is a medical intervention designed to strengthen corneal tissue. RSP is performed in local anesthesia and is painless.RSP is performed in children from about 10 years of age to prevent progression of keratoconus and deterioration of vision. No age limit set.The purpose of the RSP is to stop keratoconus progression and visual degradation. Some patients see better with glasses or contact lenses than they did before the procedure. At the moment, a great deal of attention is paid to diagnose keratoconus at the earliest opportunity and to use RSP to protect a person from visual degradation. The corneal strengthening procedure is not expected to restore vision, but stop its deterioration.
It is recommended to do not wear hard contact lenses for about two weeks. The first week after surgery, the eyes need to be protected - do not crush, do not wet, do not use makeup, take the medicine as prescribed.Some patients notice that after a few weeks, the vision is getting worse. The procedure has a positive effect after 4-8 weeks, and the maximum effect is usually achieved within 3-6 months.
