How the Symptoms of Keratoconus Can Affect Your Daily Life

Many people have heard of Keratoconus some have even known someone with the condition or are possibly dealing with it personally. But many still don’t understand how the condition works and how it will affect their daily life. Keratoconus is a progressive condition that affects your vision by distorting the image you see in front of you. The reason this happens is because Keratoconus causes the shape of the cornea to protrude like a hernia. Instead of a sphere the cornea is shaped more like a cone. This cone shape causes the light to reflect off the cornea in an irregular way. Over time this continues to gradually diminish your vision and the way you view things.

Keratoconus can occur either gradually over time or after injury. In some there seems to be a genetic family inheritance risk factor. It is important to understand the symptoms of this progressive condition because if it goes untreated for too long it can cause severe damage to the patient’s eyes.

Below are some signs and symptoms of Keratoconus:

Frequent blurred vision
Frequent rubbing of the eyes
Frequent changes in prescription
Seeing Halos & Glare around lights at night
Decreased night vision
High amount of astigmatism
Poor vision in glasses
Poor comfort in contacts
Increased difficulty wearing contacts all day

Understanding how the early signs affect you and recognizing them can help with more effective treatment, even possible prevention. But it can also help you understand what will happen to your vision as the condition progresses.

Frequent Changes in Prescriptions:

While many of us have been to the eye care professional as long as we can remember we don’t usually need a new prescription each year. But if you are noticing that you are in need of prescriptions more frequently you may want to bring it up with your eye doctor. This could be a symptoms of early stage Keratoconus.

Decreased Night Vision:

One of the major signs of Keratoconus is decreased night vision. Many of us struggle with seeing far distances in the day without our glasses or contacts but a disruption in your vision at night can cause many problems. If you work at night, or travel this can disrupt your day. Let the eye doctor know if you are having more difficulty driving at night or seeing even in the passenger’s side this will help them better diagnosis you.
