Hello Doctor, My son aged 24 is patient of keratoconus .When he was about 10-11 years old it was come to our notice that his eyesight is weak .we consulted eye specialist and he recommend glasses.My son used glasses for about 4 years but his number was increasing then a doctor said that my son is facing an eye disease keratoconus and for this disease he recommend hard lenses .Now he is using hard lenses.When he start these lenses he remain comfortable for about 4 years after that his cornea become cone type and off & on his lenses fell down.Presently he use soft lenses and on these soft lenses he use hard lens. Soft lenses are uses just to grip the hard lens,but this method is also not useful because still lenses fell down. Doctor is there any treatment in homeopathy which can repair the cornea and its shape comes in normal position and my son get rid of from lenses Regards, Najam ul Hassan Rizvi.

thanks for your query

as per discussion yourson had keratoconus.
Keratoconus is an eye disease that affects the structure of the cornea. The cornea is the clear tissue covering the front of the eye.The shape of the cornea slowly changes from the normal round shape to a cone shape. The eyes bulges out and causes vision problems. Keratoconus is thought to involve a defect in collagen, the tissue that provides strength to the cornea and gives it original shape
the only surgical treatment has been corneal transplantation.
newer technologies may delay or prevent the need for corneal transplantation:like
conductive keratoplasty- to change the shape of the cornea so contact lenses work better
Corneal implants- called intracorneal ring segments to change the shape of the cornea so contact lenses work better
If corneal transplantation is needed, results are usually good.
