What is Keratoconus?
Keratoconus is an eye disease that causes the cornea to bulge into a cone shape. This irregular shape affects the way light enters into the eye causing distorted vision. Keratoconus causes have been associated with high UV exposure, bad contact lens fitting, and chronic eye irritation.
