WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY
After consulting with 5 different ophthalmologists for my case of Keratoconus, I found the doctor who seeks the best for the patient, he is very sincere and professional, SUPER recommended.
I have been a patient of Dr. Barragán for 2 years and his service has always been excellent, he takes the time to clarify doubts and explain the process in detail. I came up with the idea that I required a corneal transplant due to Keratoconus, but the Dr. evaluated me and offered me a Crosslinking treatment and scleral contact lenses. In combination of both: I recovered more than 90% of my vision, the contact lenses are incredibly comfortable and I avoided a very expensive transplant.
What is keratoconus?
Keratoconus is an ectasia or deformation of the cornea; It consists of the development of a cone-shaped deformation, which progressively modifies and alters vision, making it increasingly blurred. This process depends on the age of the patient and the onset of symptoms. Usually the younger the patient, the faster the progression.
How is Keratoconus treated?
Not all Keratoconus need Corneal Transplantation. We seek to stop the progression of Keratoconus (Crosslinking) and rehabilitate you in the simplest way possible (Contact Lens and Corneal Rings)
