What is Keratoconus (Infographic)

Keratoconus is a condition that affects 1:1800 Britons with the prevalence as high as 1:450 in some ethnic groups.

Keratoconus is formed by two Greek words: kerato, meaning cornea, and
konos, meaning cone. In this condition the usual round cornea (front
clear window of the eye) becomes cone shaped resulting in poor vision.

As leaders in the area of Cornea and conditions affecting the front of
the eye, Centre for Sight as a service to the public have created the
following infographic which provides a quick overview of the condition.
The goal is to increase awareness of the condition and the various
treatment options available.

We’ve put together an infographic covering the basic questions on
Keratoconus, but if you want more details, you can always refer to its
eye conditions and its treatments.

Mr. Sheraz Daya, Medical Director is a pioneer of many of the new
techniques used and is a founding member of the Keratoconus Experts
Group as well as the Global Consensus panel on Keratoconus.

If you have experienced Keratoconus or know someone that has, or you are
