What Is Keratoconus?

Keratoconus is a progressive eye condition characterized by the thinning of the cornea, which leads to the front surface of the eye bulging outward in a cone-like shape. This distortion causes blurry vision and increased light sensitivity. It also often harms vision, which results in frequent updates to your vision prescription. As the shape of the cornea changes, it can also become challenging to wear traditional contact lenses.

Symptoms of Keratoconus

If you are suffering from one or more of these symptoms, you should schedule an appointment with your eye doctor immediately:

  • Glare or halos around lights
  • Difficulty seeing at night
  • Headaches
  • Eye irritation or fatigue
  • Sensitivity to bright light
  • A rapid clouding of vision
