To stop the progression


Stopping or slowing down the progression of keratoconus is now possible.

Keratoconus is a chronic disease that deforms the shape of the eye’s surface and thins the cornea. The origin may be hereditary or may be caused or exacerbated by allergies and frequent eye rubbing. The disease is usually progressive, can affect both eyes and may occur in children. Usually night vision symptoms occur first, followed by daytime problems, eventually resulting in disturbances that cannot be corrected by glasses nor contact lenses. You can then intervene surgically

Stop the keratoconus. Now.

A need, a desire, a wish…

It is said that the eyes are the window of the soul – and when the eyes suffer, we are deeply affected. To worry about deteriorating vision affects our ability to live peacefully and to look toward the future with confidence. For this reason, to stop the progression of a pathology such as keratoconus can restore the ability to enjoy the vision (and the life) that we feared were lost

Technology and Solutions

Different solutions for different stages of the disease. Our main objective is to diagnose keratoconus at an early stage (so yes, even in kids), to be able to stop the progression before it causes significant visual disturbances or requires surgery. Surgery should be delayed until glasses and contact lenses no longer provide good vision. But today customized contact lenses are almost always successful to avoid intervention


20 minutes to stop the problem.

Today they represent the best non-surgical approach to stop or slow down the progression of keratoconus. In addition to stopping or reducing the advancement of the disease, corneal cross-linking can lead to a reduction of astigmatism, an improvement in eyesight and an increase in the tolerability of contact lenses. The cornea is treated with a vitamin called riboflavin and then exposed to light that strengthens the tissue

How much does it cost?

The cost for a Corneal Cross-Linking treatment is comparable to that of two roundtrip economy-class tickets to the United States; business-class if you are treating both eyes. Because all the journeys of your future should be without worries. Starting from this

Intrastromal Corneal rings

This technique aims to gain an increase in visual acuity and a reduction of optical aberrations by reshaping the corneal surface. In many cases, this technique improves the tolerance of a soft contact lens. After a few anesthetic drops, a femtosecond laser creates two tunnels in which to place the rings, a completely painless ten minute procedure. Try to believe. Oops, to see

How much does it cost?

The cost for the intervention with intrastromal rings is comparable to that of a high-end laptop. To see today’s PC better, and all of the PCs in your future

Personalized Contact Lenses

Depending on the stage of keratoconus and the characteristics of each patient, it is possible to design totally personalized soft silicone-hydrogel or corneal or scleral RGP lenses. The design and application of these lenses make use of the most advanced and sophisticated imaging equipment available at the CARONES Vision Advanced Contact Center. These devices are useful to precisely and reliably evaluate all of the ocular structures and to monitor over time the effect of the lens on the ocular surface

How much does it cost?

The cost of custom contact lenses for keratoconus can be compared to a case of French champagne. The variability of the cost of champagne also applies to these contact lenses: for champagne, it depends on the brand and the origin; for contact lenses, it depends on the material and the design. But to see better than with glasses is priceless 😉
