Traditionally, Intacs® corneal implants have been the most common treatment used to improve vision for individuals with keratoconus. However, the FDA approved a new treatment in 2016 called corneal cross linking. This minimally invasive procedure provides an excellent alternative to Intacs and can help you stem the progression of keratoconus.

Dr. Richard Foulkes offers the latest and most advanced keratoconus treatments available. During your comprehensive eye evaluation, he will discuss your options with you and let you know whether corneal cross linking will provide you with the best results for your unique situation.
