What is KeraNatural? Its Place in Keratoconus Treatment

Keratoconus is an important eye condition that directly affects vision and reduces the comfort of vision. In this eye condition, the cornea bulges outward more than normal and the corneal layer becomes thinner. With the deterioration of the shape of the cornea, vision starts to deteriorate gradually as the light cannot be focused correctly. KeraNatural can be seen as an important development for keratoconus, which is such a serious eye condition.

Keranatural (Allograft corneal ring) can be defined as a small, semi-circular piece of collagen/cornea that is implanted into the cornea to help improve vision and provide reshaping. The Keranatural product, which is human collagen or corneal tissue, is safely packaged, sterilized and made ready for surgery at Visiongift Eye Bank in America.

Allograft corneal ring implantation for keratoconus refers to an operation in which a small piece of corneal tissue (allograft) from a donor is implanted into the cornea of a patient with keratoconus, using Keranatural product. The procedure involves creating a tunnel in the cornea with a laser and inserting Keranatural into the corneal tissue. As the ring helps to flatten and thicken the cornea, this can improve vision and reduce the need for contact lenses or glasses or increase tolerance.
