FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
If a patient has keratoconus, can they go blind?
No. This condition does not cause blindness, but it can worsen vision over time. However, an advanced keratoconus patient may experience a significant impact on their visual quality and may require a corneal transplant.
Can both eyes have keratoconus?
Yes. It has been found that 97 % of cases are bilateral, although there is a 3 % chance of it being unilateral.
Can spending long hours on the computer cause keratoconus?
No. There is no evidence of this. The exception is eye rubbing in cases of discomfort from screen light.
