Keratoconus (KC) is a progressive, non-inflammatory degenerative corneal disease that can affect one or both eyes. It is hereditary in nature, typically affecting young people in the prime of their active years.
To date, the causes of keratoconus are still unknown. Several researchers admit a genetic predisposition because it is observed that about 15% of those affected by keratoconus have at least one member of the family with the same disease.
Keratoconus occurs in adolescence at around 14 years of age, although the onset in childhood is not uncommon. Usually, it initially affects only one eye and after a few years it spreads to the other. Forms of keratoconus that affect only one eye are very rare.
Early diagnosis and targeted therapies are the keys to successful treatment and a better quality of life. Do not let time pass: keratoconus creates damage that can no longer be eliminated. It is important to make an early diagnosis and block it as soon as possible.
