Treatment of keratoconus

Keratoconus is a degenerative non-inflammatory eye disease which results in thinning of the cornea and it changing to the cone shape from its normal spherical shape. Cone-shaped cornea refracts light unevenly at different point which leads to visual aberrations and reduction of visual acuity. At severe stages, the patient’s cornea is so thin that it may rupture, which becomes extremely painful.

The main purpose of keratoconus treatment is to arrest the development of the pathology and stabilize the condition of the cornea. If uncontrolled, keratoconus may lead to loss of vision.

How to eliminate keratoconus?

Excimer offers the most advanced and effective methods that make it possible to arrest the progression of keratoconus and prevent loss of vision!

You will be offered the best method of treatment based on integrated optical examination using advanced diagnostics equipment.

indicated for

  • Keratoconus treatment at early stages.

Effective and reliable method of strengthening the cornea to arrest the progression of keratoconus.

brief description of the method

A combination of riboflavin drops and a photosensitizer is used to create additional chemical links between collagen fibers responsible for mechanical density of the cornea.


The cornea becomes denser and more capable to retaining its shape, thus arresting the progression of keratoconus and regaining vision.

Intrastromal corneal ring segments

An advanced method of surgical intervention for keratoconus aimed at strengthening and reshaping the cornea and recovery of vision.

indicated for

brief description of the method

During the procedure, stromal rings (small arch-shaped segments made of a biocompatible material) are introduced into the thin cornea scarred by keratoconus to create a dense structure capable of resisting intraocular pressure.


ICRS implantation is a reliable method of stabilization of the cornea to arrest the pathological development and ensure good vision.

Excimer offers ICRS implantation using a latest-generation approach, i.e. with femtosecond laser assistance.


indicated for

  • keratoconus at advanced stages;
  • corneal leukomas induced by burns or dystrophy;
  • congenital and acquired corneal dystrophy;
  • corneal scarring after injuries, surgeries and inflammations;
  • traumatic cornea defects.

brief description of the method

Keratoplasty, in its essence, is replacement of a damaged fragment of the cornea with a corneal transplant. The transplant can be grafted inside the cornea, onto its anterior layers or replace them. The material we use at Excimer has a better clinical survival rate and a considerably lower risk of opacity.


Keratoplasty helps strengthen the cornea, restore its transparency and regain visual acuity.

Femtosecond laser-assisted treatment

Femtosecond laser assistance is used during surgical interventions for keratoconus to make the intervention noninvasive and effective, precise and customized to the patient’s visual apparatus.

Femtosecond laser assistance during ICSR implantation makes it possible to form customized, very precise stromal tunnels for a less invasive procedure and more successful results.

Femtosecond laser assistance during keratoplasty minimizes scarring and deformation of the corneal tissues to reduce the risk of astigmatism after the invervention.
