Hi !!! you are watching… Keratoconushub TV In this video, I will tell you, what is the importance of Diet in keratoconus. According to researches, it has been shown that it is possible to slow-down the worsening of keratoconus to some extent by making some changes in our diet. Keratoconus is a degenerative corneal disease caused by corneal thinning by the action of free radicals. Since the patients suffering from keratoconus lack the self- defence system to fight with these harmful free radicals, that are generated during the metabolism process. These free radicals cause harm to our body cells. Antioxidants have the power to protect the cells from the free radicals. So by adopting a diet plan which incorporates plenty of antioxidants; the damage due to free radicals can be controlled. These antioxidant substances are- vitamin-A, vitamin-C, vitamin-E, lutein, selenium, lycopene and beta-carotene.

These antioxidants are obtained from various foods like vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts, fish, meat etc. To enhance the level of antioxidants in your body, you can include the following in your diet- Papaya, apple, banana, orange, carrots, spinach, almonds, sunflower seeds and eggs etc. But the progression of keratoconus which is caused only by free radicals, can be slowed down by diet rich in antioxidants.

The keratoconus due to other causes like genetics, excessive eye rubbing and hormones; cannot be treated by diet. Although food can play its role in slowing down the progression of keratoconus but one must not depend only on diet treatment. It is essential to visit your eye doctor time-to-time to accurately observe the progression if any. On finding any progression, one must take preventive treatment like corneal collagen crosslinking which is also known as C3R or CXL; as soon as possible; to halt its progression further.
