Fighting Blindness

For those of you who have not heard of keratoconus, it is a corneal disease that causes structural changes within the cornea causing the cornea to thin and bulge outward into a steeper, irregular, more conical shape than its normal gradual curve. Keratoconus can cause substantial visual loss of vision, image distortion, streaking of lights, sensitivity to light, and multiple images, etc. Keratoconus affects about one person in a thousand, and yet the exact cause of it is uncertain.

Dr. Slade has been involved with finding a safe treatment for keratoconus from its discovery and this has been an ongoing effort for several years. He has been interviewed and featured in this article of Ocular Surgery News. Click on this blog to read more!

We are happy to report that our happy patients have been sharing experiences with us that are not only positive but so beautiful. Their words make us realize why we wake up and do what we do every day.
