Keratoconus is a progressive degenerative condition of the cornea, the clear structure that covers the front of the eye. The cornea helps to refract light onto the retina so that we can see. The cornea normally has a curvy structure, but patients with keratoconus have corneas that bulge forward causing progressive thinning of the cornea which results in a more 'cone-shaped' structure. When this occurs, light does not get focused the way it should, causing symptoms such as ghosting, glare, halos, multiple images, and blurred vision. The doctors at Rothbloom Eye Care will order diagnostic tests to rule out Keratoconus if there is any suspicion that you may have the condition. Keratoconus can be treated in several ways. At the early to moderate stages of the disease, Dr. Rothbloom and Dr. Le can fit patients with specialty contact lenses to help stabilize the condition.
