Go for corneal transplant.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for query.
Considering your situation there are two options-
1)Corneal collagen crosslinking with riboflavin-Colagen is cross linked with ultravoilet rays and riboflavin.This increases the strenght of cornea by 300% almost which arrest progression of keratoconus.

2)corneal transplantation-Central portion of cornea is removed and replaced by donor cornea.It has high succes rate and is more better then first procedure.

Thanks!
