Q&A with Dr. McCormick | Focus on Keratoconus

What is Keratoconus?

Your cornea is held in place by numerous collagen fibers. Normally, corneal cells produce damaging by-products that are kept in check and destroyed by protective anti-oxidants. However, sometimes the amount of protective antioxidants is reduced. When this happens, it weakens the tiny collagen fibers and they become too fragile to preserve the rounded shape of the cornea.

Who is at risk for Keratoconus?

This ocular condition is relatively rare, with about one person out of every 2,000 being diagnosed with keratoconus. Typically, it appears during teenagehood and can then advance rapidly or slowly – every individual case is different.

Keratoconus tends to run in families. Therefore, if you have a relative with keratoconus, it is critical to visit your eye doctor for regular comprehensive eye exams. People who have suffered a serious eye injury are also at an increased risk of keratoconus.

Certain diseases and systemic conditions also raise the risk of developing keratoconus, such as:

  • Vernal keratoconjunctivitis
  • Retinitis pigmentosa
  • Retinopathy of prematurity
  • Down syndrome
  • Ehlers-Danlos syndrome

What is the Treatment for Keratoconus?

Eyeglasses

Usually, the first treatment recommended for keratoconus is new prescription eyeglasses. If this doesn’t work well enough, specialty contact lenses are the next option.

Specialty Contact Lenses

Due to the cone shape of a cornea with keratoconus, standard contact lenses do not rest well on the eye. That’s why specialty contacts are a common solution for vision correction.
