We see through the cornea, which is the clear front window of the eye. A normal cornea has a dome shape, like a ball. In Keratoconus, however, the structure of the cornea is just not strong enough to hold this round shape. The cornea bulges outward and downward like a cone.
Myth: Hard contact lenses hold the keratoconic cornea in place and stop progression.
Myth: Nothing can be done for Keratoconus. Fact: Modern technology has revolutionized the treatment of Keratoconus.
