The new Corneal Crosslinking treatment with Riboflavin has shown success since being introduced by Dr. Stephen Turner in Northern California. Recent studies are showing that Riboflavin treatment followed by UV light can improve the cornea with keratoconus.
Patients with keratoconus should consult with a corneal specialist ophthalmologist regarding their condition. The doctor might advise Corneal crosslinking treatment with riboflavin or might suggest intacs. Many surgeons have used both with good results.
Dr. Stephen Turner practices in the San Francisco Bay area and is a corneal specialist who treats patients with keratoconus. He has offices in San Francisco, San Leandro (in the East Bay near Oakland), Concord (near Walnut Creek), and San Jose. Patients interested in discussing their vision needs should contact Turner Eye Institute for an appointment.
