Suggest treatment to cure keratoconus

Hello Doctor,

I was diagonised with keratoconus on 17jan 2009.Since then,

1. consulted DR T K RAMESH
2. Treated at LVPEI hyderabad- treatment was to wear ROSE-K rgp lens(boston materials).
3. consulted DR ROHIT SHETTY at narayana netralaya and he was kken on getting collagen cross linking done.

1. should i continue with RGP lens?
2. should i go for collagen cross linking?
3. should i go for scleral lens?
4. any other solutions?

1. i fear that collagen cross linking might lead to scaring of cornea and chances of getting astigmatism.
