Fight against Keratoconus is on.
Beverly HIlls, CA (PRWEB) January 24, 2012
Keratoconus eye disease came to public attention when it was labelled as a contraindication for lasik eye surgery.This also led to increased scrutiny and detection of this degenerative corneal eye disease. The number of people detected with this disease is increasing rapidly. It is of significance to note that this disease starts in the teens and may grow like wildfire leaving the person blind by mid twenties. Simple exams like color corneal topography and pachymetry (measurement of corneal thickness) may detect the disease early.
Unlike laser vision correction the knowledge of latest technologies for cure of keratoconus is limited. NewIntacs.com has been launched with the goal of increasing awareness, helping in early detection, and spreading the word about the latest surgical treatment modalities like Intacs and cxl or Cornea Cross Linking. The site is unique in having a discussion board for keratoconus patients.
