What Causes Keratoconus?

0 October 14, 2019

Keratoconus is a progressive eye disease in which the normally round cornea thins and begins to bulge into a cone like shape, causing distorted vision.

The Keratoconus condition depends on the age of the patient, and the intensity of rubbing the eyes.

Causes:

• Genetic predisposition

• Allergic diseases.

• Excessive eye rubbing.

The Keratoconus should be diagnosed and treated at an early stage. If the keratoconus is left untreated, it may lead to severe vision impairment.
