Keratoconus and the Great Imposters: Management with GP Lenses

Keratoconus is defined as a corneal ectasia of unknown etiology in which the cornea thins and bulges outward. It is progressive, noninfl ammatory, and noninfectious. Until recently, it was thought to affect about one in 2,000 persons in the general population, but the widespread use of corneal topography is uncovering a much higher percentage of corneal irregularities that resemble keratoconus or other related ectatic conditions. Generally, keratoconus begins in the late teens or early 20’s and progresses unpredictably. Although it affects both eyes in 94 percent of patients, there is usually considerable asymmetry between the two corneas, with the condition in one eye far more advanced than in the other.
