Keratoconus is an eye disease where the cornea(the front clear window to the eye) progressively thins and becomes distorted, often bulging outward in the shape of a cone. This warped appearance to the surface of the eye often results in high levels of irregular astigmatism which can cause high levels of blurred vision, glare and visual distortions.
Anyone who is diagnosed with keratoconus and shows signs of progression should consider having a procedure called corneal collagen cross linking; A new keratoconus surgery that has been FDA approved for to help treat keratoconus and slow or hopefully halt the progression of the disease.
People with keratoconus often have the best eyesight with the use of specialty contact lenses. These may include both hard and soft contact lenses but many eye doctors prefer the use of scleral contact lenses for keratoconus.
The development and progression of keratoconus is more common in people who rub their eyes frequently. To learn more about this see my YouTube Short on eye rubbing: https://youtu.be/Fvsx27YTwgs
