Keratoconus: A Visual Evolution

Keratoconus is a progressive eye disorder that affects the cornea, the transparent front part of the eye. The condition is characterized by the cornea gradually thinning and bulging into a cone-like shape, leading to distorted vision. Keratoconus often begins during the teenage years and progresses slowly over time. Common symptoms include blurred or distorted vision, sensitivity to light, and increased nearsightedness or astigmatism. The exact cause of keratoconus is not fully understood, but genetic and environmental factors may contribute to its development. Early stages of keratoconus can be managed with glasses or contact lenses, but advanced cases may require surgical intervention. In severe cases, a corneal transplant may be recommended to restore clear vision. Regular eye exams are crucial for detecting and monitoring keratoconus, especially in individuals with a family history of the condition.
