You may see some improvement of vision immediately but usually it takes 3-6 months for full visual recovery. Most people can expect to return to office-based work within first 24 to 48h after surgery. However, your glasses prescription may change. You should be able to resume most sports activities within 2 to 4 weeks.

KERARING® step by step answer to all your questions
- Staying as you are with wearing your current glasses or contact lenses
- Some patients may be suitable for an intraocular lens implant such as toric ICL implant.
- In very advanced cases patients may require a corneal transplant.
It is a safe procedure but like any other operation there are risks. The risks include:
- Glare and halos: Some patients may experience a mild degree of glare. This usually settles down and resolves with time. However, if this was too troublesome or not settling, the keraring can be removed
- The result are not always predictable. It still continues to be an art as well as a science. Some patients experience significant improvement while others may benefit very little or not at all. Based on Dr. Arbabi’s extensive experience in patients with keratoconus and the available guidelines, he will explain the likelihood of the procedure benefitting your eye.
- Small risk of infection or scarring
- Change of glasses prescription or worsening of vision
