Answer

Thanks for your Question

 

 

From these corneal ocular images that you submitted with your question, you have corneal ectasia or keratoconus. Keratoconus is a progressive disease and the first line of treatment is to prevent any further progression of the disease.

There is a treatment of keratoconus which is Corneal Collagen Cross Linking. By this method we prevent the progression of the disease. After Corneal Collagen Cross Linking we can think about correction of vision either by wearing Eyeglasses, contact lenses or intraocular lens implantation.

I would recommend to visit an ophthalmologist who specializes in cornea and refractive surgery as soon as possible.
