Keratoconus

What is Keratoconus?

Keratoconus is a disease of the cornea, which progressively evolves. During this evolution, the cornea adopts an irregular conic shape, due to the changes to the internal structure of the corneal tissue.  

The main anatomic signs of the keratoconus are the thinning of the cornea in its central area or sub-central area, with an elevation in this area, most of the time. There is usually a strong irregular astigmatism, which necessarily produces bad eyesight.

Genetics plays a significant role, since around 10% of individuals with keratoconus have a relative with the same disease.
