Keratoconus is the disease of eye in which the cornea loses its normal shape and becomes conical. It’s a progressive disease and needs to be managed by a specialist.

Usually, the disease can be well managed by a good and experienced eye doctor with good results. However, if you have been to multiple doctors and you’re still experiencing complications related to Keratoconus, it’s necessary to find a Keratoconus Specialist, who is precise, meticulous, and understands Keratoconus and contact lenses in depth.

Dr. Irwin Azman, Keratoconus Specialist is an expert in fitting contact lenses for patients suffering with Keratoconus. He successfully manages patients even if they have uncommon complications of the disease.

Complications of Keratoconus

Complications of Keratoconus include the visual impairments and related symptoms caused by the disease, including:

  • Blurring of vision
  • Astigmatism
  • Myopia
  • Light sensitivity
  • Nearsightedness
  • Distorted vision

Other complications of Keratoconus include:

  • Corneal thinning
  • Myopia

In certain situations, the cornea may swell quickly and result in sudden reduction in the vision and scarring of the cornea.

The cornea may also get scarred in advanced Keratoconus, particularly at the part where cone is formed. A scarred cornea is a complication that causes worsening of the visual problems and may even require corneal transplant.

Patients with Keratoconus sometimes also suffer with anxiety, however proper knowledge and management of the disease helps in adaptation and reduces anxiety.
