Keratoconus is an eye condition that mostly affects the cornea of the eyes. This condition can affect either one or both eyes simultaneously. Keratoconus can cause a complete loss of eyesight as it progresses.
The cornea is the transparent outer circular component of the eye and its primary function is light refraction. It is composed of a flexible protein called collagen, which aids in the maintenance of the cornea’s round shape as in this condition, it might get changed to an irregular conical shape. Keratoconus is often observed when this collagen begins to degrade and there are numerous irregularities on the corneal surface. The loss of collagen causes thinning of the cornea, which can impair eyesight.
It is often diagnosed in adolescence and can progress with age. Proper management of illness is extremely crucial to slow down the progression.
