How much vision improves after keranatural?

Keratoconus is a progressive eye disease that causes the cornea to thin and bulge outward, leading to impaired vision. Allograft corneal ring treatment, also known as corneal ring implantation, is a surgical procedure that involves inserting small plastic rings into the cornea to reshape the cornea and improve vision.


The amount of improvement in vision after Keranatural treatment with an allograft corneal ring can vary from person to person, depending on the severity of their keratoconus and other factors. Some patients may experience significant improvement in their vision, while others may experience only a tiny improvement.

In clinical trials, patients who underwent allograft corneal ring treatment experienced an average improvement of 2 to 3 lines on the visual acuity chart, which is a significant improvement. This means that if a patient had 20/80 vision before surgery, they could achieve 20/40 or better vision after the procedure.

In addition, Keranatural treatment can also help patients to better tolerate contact lenses and glasses. Before surgery, many keratoconus patients struggle to find comfortable contact lenses or glasses that can adequately correct their vision. After the procedure, the cornea is reshaped, making it easier to wear contact lenses or glasses correctly. This can improve the patient’s overall vision and quality of life.

While keranatural treatment is effective in improving vision in keratoconus patients, it is important to note that it is not a cure for the condition. The procedure can help slow the progression of keratoconus and improve vision, but patients may still need glasses or contact lenses to achieve optimal vision.

In conclusion, Keranatural (allograft corneal ring) can be an effective option for keratoconus patients who want to improve their vision and tolerance of contact lenses and glasses. While the amount of improvement in vision can vary, many patients experience significant improvement in their vision after the procedure. If you are considering allograft corneal ring treatment, it is very important to speak with an ophthalmologist to discuss your options and potential outcomes.
