Beverly Hills Eye Surgeon, Dr. Brian Boxer Wachler, Launches First Ever Supplement for KeratoconusPatients, KC Defense

Renowned eye surgeon and founder of the Boxer Wachler Vision Institute, Brian Boxer Wachler, MD, has launched the first ever supplement to help support Keratoconus cornea health. Keratoconus is a degenerative eye disease that can lead to severe to severe vision loss. The supplement, KC Defense, includes specific amounts Copper (Cu) and Selenium (Se), elements that have been scientifically provento be significantly lower in patients with advanced Keratoconus compared to those without the disease.

Dr. Brian Boxer Wachler is known world-wide for developing in 2003 the first ever non-invasive cross-linking procedure to treat Keratoconus, the Holcomb C3-R®. Prior to Dr. Boxer Wachler's medical advancements, the most commonly performed procedure for Keratoconus was a painful and invasive cornea transplant.

"Every week, we see dozens of patients whose lives have been destroyed or are being threatened to be destroyed by Keratoconus. Patients travel from all over the world seeking treatment for this potentially damaging disease. It is my hope that by taking KC Defense over time that we can decrease the number of Keratoconus patients in need of advanced procedures," said Dr. Boxer Wachler.

Keratoconus is a degenerative eye disease in which the normally round cornea thins and begins to bulge into a cone-like shape. This cone shape prevents the light, entering the eye, from being focused correctly on the retina and causes distortion of vision. As years progress and the condition worsens, visioncan continue to become more distorted and can degrade exponentially.

The study evaluating the association between advanced Keratoconus and serum levels of Copper, Selenium, and other elements can be found in thejournal Cornea.
