ICON Eyecare offers treatment for those suffering from keratoconus, a progressive eye condition where the cornea thins and protrudes in an abnormal shape. A normal cornea is a dome shape, but with keratoconus the progressive thinning produces a ‘cone’ shape. Because the cornea is responsible for allowing light to enter the deeper structures of the eye to focus light, those with keratoconus often do not have clear vision because light will not bend properly as it enters the eye.
Keratoconus most often affects young people, with symptoms sometimes appearing as young as the early teenage years.
