Treatment usually begins with new eyeglasses. If eyeglasses don't provide clear vision, then contact lenses, usually rigid gas permeable contact lenses, might be recommended. With mild cases, new eyeglasses can usually make vision clear again.
A treatment called cornea collagen crosslinking is often effective to help preventany further progression. Implants (intacs) are placed under the surface of the cornea in order to reduce the cone-shaped cornea and help to improve the patient's vision.
