What is Keratoconus?

Keratoconus is a degenerative eye condition where the cornea thins and changes to a more conical shape (rather than gently curved). Symptoms include vision distortion, seeing multiple images and streaking, and sensitivity to light. It can eventually get bad enough that it may affect the ability to read or drive.

Treatments can include glasses or soft contact lenses to correct vision in the earlier stages, and other types of contact lenses as the condition progresses. Corneal transplants may be needed in some cases, and combination medication and UV treatments like Photrexa (riboflavin) are now an option.
