VIDEO: Treating keratoconus with surgery

KOLOA, Hawaii — At Hawaiian Eye 2020, Richard S. Davidson, MD, discusses surgical correction for keratoconus. “We hope that nobody will need a penetrating keratoplasty or a DALK in the future due to the fact that if we catch these patients early enough in their early teens, their late teens, before they have significant progression of their keratoconus, that we could potentially prevent the need for a penetrating keratoplasty,” Davidson said.
