The word keratoconus comes from the Greek words ‘kerato’ for cornea, and ‘konus’ meaning cone. It describes one of the common features of this condition - cone-shaped or bulging eyes.

Keratoconus affects about one in 2,000 people, to varying degrees, and usually shows up between the ages of 10 and 25. It causes a progressive thinning and weakening of the cornea - the clear front ‘window’ of the eye - leading to blurred or distorted vision.

The causes of keratoconus remain a mystery, although it’s thought to be hereditary. So as with most things in life, you can blame your parents. Fortunately, the treatments for keratoconus are far from mysterious, and can often be as simple as glasses or contact lenses.

For some people with keratoconus, a revolutionary treatment called corneal collagen cross-linking can be hugely effective in stopping keratoconus in its tracks. Other options for more advanced cases of keratoconus include implantable collamer lenses, corneal rings and corneal transplantation.

LASIK proves a superior investment over the course of 20 years or less, depending on how much you spend on glasses or contacts. Not to mention you will enjoy the added benefit of not requiring to wear glasses or put in contacts every day.
