Is Keratoconus Impacting You?

Keratoconus occurs when your cornea — the front part of your eye that focuses light — begins to thin. This causes this normally rounded frontal region to bulge outward in a cone-like shape. Aside from this physical sign of keratoconus, there are other symptoms, like blurry vision, sensitivity to light, frequent changes to your prescription, and a sudden clouding in your sight.

We Detect Keratoconus Early

During our comprehensive eye exams, we can detect the corneal thinning caused by keratoconus before it can cause damage to your vision. There is currently no cure for keratoconus, but we can keep it from worsening through targeted treatment plans. This makes early diagnosis of keratoconus especially important because the sooner we find it, the sooner we can treat it.

Keratoconus Management

There’s no one-size-fits-all treatment for keratoconus, and we’re proud to offer a variety of solutions to manage your condition while safeguarding your vision. After checking your eyes in depth and getting to know your needs during a comprehensive eye exam, we’ll tailor your treatment to you. For keratoconus, we provide a range of specialty contact lenses, including scleral lenses, corneal rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses, and ClearKone hybrid lenses from SynergEyes. Based on how mild or serious your case is, we can also prescribe soft lenses and recommend surgical options if necessary.

I visited Washington Eye Doctors for my dry eyes. Dr. Rosenblatt is awesome, he is very respectful and professional. Zero pressure when you talk to him. After the treatments, I feel absolutely better. Eye dryness is painful, and someone says it's more like a disability than a disorder. I can't agree more. Before I get the treatments, I can't even sit down and type these words for like 15 mins. Now I am not 100% recovered but at least I could work and study like a normal person. I am still using prescribed medications and I am confident that this problem is treatable. If you have dry eyes, try to contact Dr. Roosenblatt is the best advice I could give.

I have been with Washington Eye Doctors for 50 years since the Katz/Kanstroom days. They guided me through bifocals as a kid, contacts as an adolescent and Lasik as an adult. 25 years after Lasik I still have near perfect vision. I just went back for night driving glasses. Always quick, efficient and thorough consistently over the decades.

I had the best experience here! In a crunch, they were more than happy to help me get new contacts and were incredibly helpful and kind. Definitely will be going back!!

A group of kind, friendly human beings. I was visiting Washington, D.C. from out of town, ran into a bind, and this practice was able to help me so that I could drive back home. I am so thankful for their help.

The absolute best choice for dry eye! I had been suffering for years, and now my eyes are drastically better after only three months of proper treatment. Dr. Abraham is excellent. He explains things very clearly and listens to concerns with compassion. I really appreciate his help and cannot recommend Washington Eye Doctors highly enough, especially for dry eye patients.

Dr Rosenblatt has been my eye doctor for many years and worked with me to get my proper correction for nearsightedness. My extra-sensitive system was previously over-corrected and his prescriptions enabled my vision to be more relaxed and stabilize. The glasses are high quality and good fit. I’m especially fond of the nearly weightless frames and lenses.
