Do You Have Family Members With Keratoconus?

Keratoconus is a progressive condition and can be a debilitating if left untreated. Watching your family members go through it can make you feel helpless and useless in some experiences. You probably have many questions on the condition after watching your family members go through their treatments. In past years their were limited treatments for Keratoconus and eventual cornea transplants were needed for the patient to keep their quality of vision. This type of treatment had a long recovery period and often caused the patient pain.

Today’s treatments have improved a lot since then and quite honestly there is little to no pain with many of them. Patients have much shorter recovery times, and have a much better quality of vision without replacing their corneas. Still many people have questions when they find out a family member is going through a condition like Keratoconus. The condition can often cause a reduced activity level and sometimes have complications in their normal lives. A few questions maybe “Will I get Keratoconus?” or “Will they go blind?”.

While these are all reasonable questions, and having a family member with Keratoconus is one of the highest risk factors of Keratoconus it doesn’t guarantee that you will get it. It only tells you to watch yourself and your eye health a little more. Getting annual eye exams can help with early detection.

Understanding Eye Diseases & Treatments

For many of us the eye is a faint thought in our heads, few are curious about how the eye works. However those who take the time to learn find that the eye is a complicated machine that when functioning properly work well. However if there are any added complications the eye can loose function quickly.

The most common eye diseases & conditions come from hiccups in the function of the cornea or lens. First to understand the conditions you must understand the cornea how it works and what it’s purpose is. The Cornea helps protect the eye from dust, debris, and other irritants from entering the eye. The cornea is very important to help bend the light entering your eye to help with focusing images. The cornea is like a camera lens, clear, durable, and strong. The internal lens of the eye also helps to focus images onto the retina so we see clearly.

There are many conditions that occur because the cornea or lens is either not functioning right, damaged, or merely building up too much debris on the lens.

Keratoconus: Keratoconus is caused because the cornea itself is changing shape causing a distortion within your vision.

Cataracts: Cataracts is caused because the natural lens of the eye of becomes cloudy. Over time it can severely distort your vision.

There are several treatment options for Keratoconus, Cataracts, and other eye conditions. For more information on your treatment and treatment options visit: www.AllAboutVision.com
