Keraring Implants

In cases where keratoconic patients are no longer able to get good visual outcomes from glasses or contact lenses the option of intra-corneal ring segments (Kerarings) may be considered.

The Keraring procedure has the goal of improving visual acuity by  

  • flattening the bulge of the cornea
  • making the corneal surface more regular to improve quality of vision
  • reduction of myopia and astigmatism
  • improving the tolerance and comfort of contact lens wear  

The ring segments are implanted into the body of the cornea to support and reshape the corneal surface.

This treatment is often done in conjunction with corneal cross linking.
