What Is Keratoconus?
Keratoconus is an eye condition characterized by the thinning of your cornea—the clear “window” at the front of your eye that allows light to reach your retina.
As a result of your cornea thinning, it will then bulge outward, leading to several different symptoms that affect your vision, eye health, and eye comfort.
Without treatment, keratoconus may cause permanent vision problems.
Managing Keratoconus with Scleral Lenses
One of the ways our team can help address keratoconus is by prescribing scleral lenses.
These unique specialty contact lenses are larger in size than traditional contact lenses and rest on the sclera (whites) of your eyes, giving them the ability to vault over your cornea and provide you with clear, comfortable vision.
Keratoconus Symptoms & Risk Factors
Keratoconus typically develops between the ages of 10 and 25 and can progress slowly over the course of 10 or so years.
If we detect signs of keratoconus, we’ll create a personalized management plan. If you’re unsure if you have keratoconus, please visit us for an eye exam. The symptoms and risk factors could give some insight into how keratoconus can affect your vision.
