One in 2000 people worldwide may have Keratoconus, a condition which results in your cornea thinning and bulging, becoming oddly shaped. Not only does it cause your vision to become impaired, but those with KC also complain of double vision, halos, ghosting, dry eyes and headaches, Keratoconus is VERY hard to treat effectively. That’s why the world is coming together to raise awareness for World Keratoconus Day on November 10.
Will you help?
World Keratoconus Day is sponsored by the National Keratoconus Foundation. According to the official World Keratoconus Day website, this day is dedicated to raise awareness about Keratoconus (KC), as well as to support and advocate for those living with KC by:
- Encouraging people around the world to share their KC stories
- Educating patients, friends and family about Keratoconus
- Collaborating with fellow KC organizations

Do You THINK You Have Keratoconus?
Have you ever wondered if you have Keratoconus? If not, maybe you’ve been diagnosed with astigmatism and are still having a hard time correcting your vision. Maybe your vision changes so frequently, you rarely remain with the same prescription for more than a few months. Or maybe your Optometrist has told you that your eyes are just “hard to fit” with contact lenses.
All of those are signs that you might have Keratoconus.
And if it’s not you, maybe someone you know has those symptoms. If so, it’s time to get screened for Keratoconus. The best way to do that is with an eye exam with a qualified Keratoconus Expert like Dr. Barry Leonard. If the exam reveals that you do have Keratoconus, his advanced treatment methods can help you finally see clearly with Keratoconus.
Do You KNOW You Have Keratoconus?
