Money no object consultant/treatment

Bit of a weird topic but I'm interested in your thoughts.

I was thinking, if I was a billionaire and money was no object, what would I do to treat my Keratoconus.

If you could get any treatment or see any consultant/expert - what would you do? It has to be within the realm of possibility, no replacing your eyes with lasers!

personally I wouldn't as view things as I was fortunate to be born sighted, sadly life had a different path for me n that was to develop KC n it to leave me legally blind despite umpteen surgeries, I have adapted ot the sight loss and wont allow it to stop me in life.

Only a little bit science fiction from me...

There have already been experimental patients who have had a (small) number of artifical pixels interfaced to their optic nerve. I'd use my squillions to speed up this research and give me an HD level of pixels. 6 million dollar man? Nah, it will cost FAR more than that!

I was thinking to myself, apart from not having to worry about how to pay for say CXL, being a millionaire would make no difference. KC is sort of a level playing field in that regard.

I like that idea - replace my corneas with a 4K sensor or something!
