does the verasyse lens help with treating keratakonis? That is my condition and the little hard contact is a pain and I dont really want cornea implants.

Keratoconus

The Verisyse phakic intraocular lens (P-IOL) does not improve keratoconus, however there are other surgical procedures that may. Intacs have been found to stabilize keratoconus and can correct myopia (nearsightedness).
