Keratoconus is an corneal disorder where progressive thinning or bulging occurs. This irregular shape of the cornea prevents light entering the eye from being focused properly, resulting in distortion of vision. Keratoconus can easily be detected by Dr. Packer with the use of corneal topography and a microscopic examination. In mild cases, the fitting of soft contact lenses can correct for the vision distortion; while in moderate to severe cases Dr. Packer must fit gas permeable contacts or custom hybrid contact lenses to best suit the patient's needs.  Keratoconus treatment in Austin, TX.
