The cornea is the clear curved layer at the front of the eye. The precise shape of the cornea allows it to act as a lens, projecting an image into the eye. Sometimes the cornea is not strong enough to hold this round shape and it bulges outwards like a cone. This condition is called Keratoconus and it results in significant vision impairment.
Symptoms usually start to occur in people who are in their late teens and early 20s. The treatment plan for Keratoconus has two aspects, first to stop its progression and second is to look at the refractive error and provide aid to improve the impaired vision. Severe cases may require corneal transplant.
