Keratoconus is a weakness of the structure of the cornea resulting in a progressive deformation of its shape. Usually, this deformation does not cause any visual symptoms, but in some cases it can result in a significant reduction in the quality of vision.
The treatment of keratoconus aims to solidify the structure of the proteins of the cornea with ultra-violet light. This technique is called ‘Cross-Linking’ of the cornea.
