Life-changing Cornea Revolution Keratoconus Treatments

Welcome to Cornea Revolution, where pioneering advancements in keratoconus treatments illuminate new pathways of hope and opportunity for those living with this challenging eye condition.

Keratoconus, a disorder that reshapes the cornea into a cone-like structure, disrupts the lives of many with its progressive vision decline. Our mission transcends conventional treatment paradigms, arresting the disease’s progression, offering our patients a vision of a clearer future.

Understanding Keratoconus

Keratoconus is a corneal disease that compromises the structural integrity of the cornea, transforming its normal rounded shape into a cone-like bulge. This deformation disrupts the cornea’s ability to focus light correctly, leading to progressively worsening vision. The disease typically announces its onset in the teenage years or early twenties, with a variable rate of progression. Characterized by symptoms such as blurred vision, light sensitivity, and the perception of halos around lights, keratoconus poses a significant challenge to maintaining normal visual function.

The underlying causes of keratoconus involve a combination of genetic tendencies and environmental factors, though the exact origin remains elusive. What is evident, however, is the weakening of the collagen fibers within the cornea, which are crucial for maintaining its shape and strength. When these fibers become compromised, they reduce the cornea’s resistance to internal eye pressure, leading to its characteristic conical deformation.

The CREATE+CXL Protocol

In response to the limitations of traditional keratoconus treatments, Cornea Revolution has pioneered the CREATE+CXL Protocol, a revolutionary approach that combines the precision of topographic guided ablation with the fortifying effects of corneal cross-linking. This protocol aims to correct the corneal surface’s unevenness and tackle the foundational weakness that makes the cornea prone to deformation.

Topographic guided ablation carefully reshapes the cornea, reducing its unevenness and improving its optical quality. After reshaping the cornea, specialists employ corneal cross-linking to strengthen the corneal tissue. By saturating the cornea with riboflavin and then exposing it to a controlled amount of UV light, cross-linking increases the bonds between collagen fibers, enhancing corneal rigidity and halting the progression of keratoconus.

The Journey to Innovation

A series of groundbreaking advancements in the field of ophthalmology paved the path to developing the CREATE+CXL Protocol. The journey began with the Dresden Protocol, conceived by Dr. Theo Siler in 1999. This technique introduced the concept of corneal cross-linking, using riboflavin and UV light to strengthen the cornea and stop the progression of ectatic diseases.

Building upon this foundation, Dr. A. John Kanellopoulos introduced the Athens Protocol, which combined corneal cross-linking with topographic guided ablation to not only halt disease progression but also correct corneal unevenness. This innovative approach marked a significant leap forward in treating keratoconus, setting a new standard of care worldwide.

The culmination of these efforts led Dr. Manoj Motwani to develop the CREATE+CXL Protocol at Cornea Revolution. Dr. Motwani’s vision extended beyond the existing treatments, aiming to address not only the visible flaws but also the hidden aberrations masked by epithelial compensation. By integrating advanced epithelial mapping with the corrective capabilities of topographic guided ablation and the structural reinforcement of corneal cross-linking, the CREATE+CXL Protocol represents the zenith of keratoconus treatment innovation.

This journey to innovation underscores our unwavering commitment to pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in eye care. Our dedication to research, development, and patient care fuels our mission to offer life-changing treatments to those affected by keratoconus, empowering them to reclaim their vision and their lives.

Transforming Keratoconus Care with Advanced Treatments

At Cornea Revolution, we are committed to transforming the lives of those suffering from keratoconus through advanced treatments. Our innovative approaches go beyond conventional methods, targeting the root cause of keratoconus and not just its symptoms. By leveraging the latest technologies and research in ophthalmology, we are able to offer treatments that are not only effective in improving vision but also in stopping the progression of the disease. Our advanced keratoconus treatments, including the groundbreaking CREATE+CXL Protocol, embody our dedication to providing patients with the best possible outcomes.

The Impact of Corneal Collagen Cross-Linking

One of the cornerstone treatments at Cornea Revolution is corneal collagen cross-linking. This procedure utilizes UV light to strengthen the collagen fibers in the cornea, effectively halting the progression of keratoconus. It represents a significant breakthrough in treating keratoconus, offering a non-invasive solution to prevent further worsening of vision. Patients undergoing corneal collagen cross-linking at our center report not only stabilized vision but also an improvement in visual quality, reducing the need for more invasive procedures like corneal transplants.

Customized Contact Lens Solutions

For individuals with keratoconus, standard eyewear often fails to provide adequate vision correction due to the irregular shape of the cornea. At Cornea Revolution, we offer customized contact lens solutions, including gas permeable contact lenses and soft contact lenses specially designed to vault over the cornea. These custom solutions provide enhanced vision correction and comfort, tailored to the unique needs of each keratoconus patient. By fitting lenses that precisely match the contours of the cone-shaped cornea, we help our patients achieve the best possible vision and quality of life.

Empowering Patients and Families

Education is a pillar of our approach at Cornea Revolution. We believe that empowering patients and their families with comprehensive knowledge about keratoconus, its impacts, and the treatments available is essential. Our dedicated team of eye doctors and specialists are committed to ensuring that patients understand their condition, the progression of the disease, and the full spectrum of treatment options available to them. Through education, we aim to involve patients in their care decisions, ensuring they are informed and confident in the path they choose.

Advanced Cases and Beyond: RK/AK and Corneal Transplants

For advanced cases of keratoconus, as well as individuals who have undergone Radial Keratotomy (RK) or Anterior Keratotomy (AK), Cornea Revolution offers specialized treatments designed to address complex needs. The CREATE Protocol, particularly, has shown promising results in correcting the flaws caused by previous surgeries. Additionally, our expertise extends to managing and improving outcomes for patients requiring or having undergone corneal transplants. By applying advanced topographic-guided ablation techniques, we can significantly enhance visual quality, even in the most challenging cases, offering renewed hope and improved vision.

Looking Ahead: The Future of Keratoconus Treatment

The future of keratoconus treatment at Cornea Revolution is bright, with ongoing research and technological advancements opening new possibilities for patients.

Our commitment to innovation drives us to constantly explore and adopt cutting-edge treatments that promise to further improve outcomes for keratoconus patients. We dedicate ourselves not just to keeping pace with the latest developments but also to contributing to the field through our research and clinical trials.
