Keratoconus

Keratoconus is a progressive eye disease where the cornea thins at the central area and bulges. The thinning and bulging of the cornea then leads to visual impairment which needs to be treated. 

 

The visual symptoms associated with keratoconus include blurry vision, short sightedness, becoming very sensitive to light, difficulty driving at night due to glare and halos around lights.  

Here at EMEG we have the most current equipment used to test corneal changes.

 

The Oculus Pentacam is the gold-standard in anterior segment topography. 

Early treatment involves glasses and contact lenses, further treatment requires surgery. Our corneal specialist can perform procedures such as cross-linking to stop this progress and prevent loss of vision. In severe cases, a corneal transplant may be required. 


Assoc Prof Mark Daniell is a highly experienced corneal surgeon. He is the head of the corneal department at the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital and trains fellows in corneal surgery.
