Keratoconus
Keratoconus Market

Keratoconus (KC) is an eye disorder characterized by progressive thinning and changes in the cornea's shape. The cornea is the thin, transparent outer layer of the eye and usually is dome-shaped. Slowly progressive thinning of the cornea leads to a cone-shaped bulge to develop towards the cornea center in the most significant thinning areas. Affected people develop blurry or distorted vision, sensitivity to light (photophobia), and additional vision problems.


Generally, KC is primarily diagnosed in young people at puberty or in their late teens. The exact cause of the disease is unknown. Several theories are based on research and its association with other conditions such as allergies and genetic causes; although, no one theory explains it all, and a combination of things may cause it.
