November 10th is World Keratoconus Day, and the team at Northeastern Eye Institute wanted to take advantage of this observance to make sure you know your options when dealing with this vision condition. Fortunately, this rare eye disorder is easily treated.
Keratoconus is a progressive vision disorder that occurs when your cornea begins to thin, causing it to morph from a round, dome-like shape into a cone-like shape. This causes your vision to become significantly distorted. Keratoconus often develops in your teens or early 20s, and it can occur in one or both eyes.
While the primary focus of our practice at Northeastern Eye Institute involves caring for your vision and your overall eye health, we also offer oculoplastics services. This is a specialized field of ophthalmology that addresses issues associated with the eyelids and the structures surrounding the eye.
Some oculoplastic services are cosmetic in nature, helping you restore a youthful and rejuvenated appearance. Others are medical in nature, addressing functional issues with the structures of your eye.
