I think you can beat keratoconus naturally ... without any procedures
Permalink   
 


Hi, I got diagnosed about 5 months ago and I wrote about my slight improvement in the past 2 months and bigger improvement in the past 1 week. My reddit thread is here: http://www.reddit.com/r/Keratoconus/comments/37yndr/i_think_you_can_beat_keratconus_naturally_without/

Let me know if you have questions or any input. I'll be keeping track of my progress and let you guys know how it goes.

"Hi, I was diagnosed with keratoconus in my left eye about 5 months ago around the time that I graduated college. My doctor recommended me to do the cxl but I never did the treatment because I could't afford it.

Over the last 2 months, my vision is starting to clear up a little and most of the improvement have occured in the past week. I'll try to document some of the things that I think are helping my eyes and some of the background research i've done. My college background was in chemical engineering, biology, pre-med and heaving emphasis on research so learning about this condition came very naturally for me.

2 Months ago I moved back home to try to recover from this condition so I stopped wearing contacts all together. I also tried to wear glasses as little as possible. I think that not wearing contact lenses have helped my recovery. I have also tried to get more sun exposure everyday and get outdoors more.

In the past week is when ive seen the most improvement in my vision and the ghosting has gotten a lot better. In the last week, I started taking multivitamin, fish oil, and vitamin d3 5000iu supplements. I really believe that the vitamin d3 5000iu is what is helping my recovery the most. The following links/articles are where I find support for the vitamin supplement:

http://ericbakker.com/vitamin-d/

http://www.medhelp.org/posts/recovery-after-vitamin-D-deficiency/huge-problems-with-vision/show/1913012

This is just some of the research I've found that have helped. Of course I'm still in the process of recovering and I have only been on the vitamin d3 5000iu supplement for 1 week, so I will have to give more time to see how it goes. But in the past week I have seen deffinite improvements. Let me know if you have any questions and I hope this information is helpful for anyone with keratoconus."

I copy over the post you made. I am sure some people who wear glasses or contacts *for what ever the refractive problem, KC or no KC) do become reliant on them more and more just because of wearing them. If there is no eye strain, no big loss in vision..sometimes not wearing corrective lenses and trying this out is the way to go, but then may be they need it for low light or night vision. Dry eyes alone can cause a marginal drop in vision.

Thanks a lot for copying over my post! As for night vision, I can noticeably see an improvement. A few weeks ago, the most difficult things for me at night were bright lights like LEDs and stoplights at intersections, but now, the ghosting is getting a lot better. I'll try my best to come check on this thread every few days and give an update on my condition. Also, I noticed that my depth of vision is starting to get better as well! Leaves on trees also seem more green. Its kinda cool and I hope the improvements keep going. I want to be done with Kc. Let me know if you have questions.

This is important for me, when the condition got better was it AFTER you moved home?  If so was the place you was staying in (before it got better) damp or had mold on wall, dusty or had wardrobes with a musky smell? Thanks

Dear Megan,

Hope you got rid of your KC & enjoying your life. Its been almost one and half yours since you have posted. Can u pls update on your improvements.

I do have this problem in both of my eyes. Left Eye - Power 4 & Right eye - 1.25. 

Cornea Thickness: Left Eye - 420 Micrometer,  Right Eye - 450 Micrometer and the normal as u know is 540 Micrometer.

I was advised by the doctor to go with C3R to stop KC's progression further.

I am taking Vitamin D3 5000 IU everyday (1 Soft Gel from NOW foods brand).

I can't see anything clearly with my left eye. I am managing with right eye.

Doctors have told me its not possible to treat it without surgery.

Please share whatever methods you know to control/cure Keratoconus. I am depressed a lot and I am just in my early twenties. Please help me recover from this blindness...

I wish you & your family a happy, healthy, prosperous & a fantastic year ahead...

Awaiting eagerly for your reply.. 

Gvan
