Keratoconus is a rare, progressive disease that affects the cornea, the clear transparent layer at the front of the eye. The corneal tissue thins out and bulges into a cone-like shape. This deflects the light entering the eye and distorts vision.
People with myopia are usually able to see well up close, but have difficulty seeing objects at a distance. Myopia is one of the most common vision problems worldwide and it is on the rise.
Low vision can affect both children and adults, but is more common in the elderly, who are at greater risk of eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and cataracts, which are some of the most common causes of the condition.
Dry eye syndrome (DES) is a chronic condition that develops when your eyes do not produce and maintain enough tears to keep the eye’s surface lubricated resulting in multiple symptoms that range from person to person.
Q&A with Dr. Evans | Focus on Keratoconus
What is Keratoconus?
Keratoconus is a rare, progressive disease that affects the cornea, which is the clear, transparent layer at the front of the eye. The cornea is responsible for focusing the light that comes into your eye onto the retina for clear, sharp vision. Keratoconus causes the corneal tissue to thin out and bulge into a cone-like shape which deflects the light entering the eye and distorts vision.
