Keratoconus usually starts in the teenage years. It can, though, begin in childhood or in people up to about age 30. It’s possible it can occur in people 40 and older, but that is less common.
The changes in the shape of the cornea can happen quickly or may occur over several years. The changes can result in blurred vision, glare and halosat night, and the streaking of lights.
The changes can stop at any time, or they can continue for decades. There is no way to predict how it will progress. In most people who have keratoconus, both eyes are eventually affected, although not always to the same extent. It usually develops in one eye first and then later in the other eye.
With severe keratoconus, the stretched collagen fibres can lead to severe scarring. If the back of the cornea tears, it can swell and take many months for the swelling to go away. This often causes a large corneal scar.

Keratoconus is a progressive disease in which the patient’s cornea that is usually round in shape becomes thin and irregular shaped (cone-like). Due to this, the light rays entering the eye don’t focus on a single point resulting in blurred and distorted vision. If left untreated, Keratoconus becomes severe, leading to sudden & significant vision loss. Generally, it affects both eyes differently and its initial symptoms can be most commonly found in late teens.
Visionnex Eye Centre is well-equipped with the latest technology and ultra-modern equipment for the early diagnosis and monitoring of Keratoconus. We have an extremely talented, skilled and experienced team of eye surgeons in Pune offering a wide spectrum of Keratoconus treatments that include:
- Corneal collagen cross-linking(CXL)
- Contact Lenses (Custom Soft, Gas Permeable, Piggybacking, Hybrid, Scleral and Semi-scleral)
- Intacs Implants
- Topography-guidedConductive Keratoplasty
- Corneal Transplant
In the initial stages of Keratoconus, CXL has proved to be very successful in correcting the blurred and distorted vision. But in advanced stages, when CXL and other treatments don’t provide acceptable vision, then corneal transplant is considered to get required outcomes. Our expert Keratoconus specialists perform cornea transplant procedure with high accuracy & precision. They replace the diseased cornea with a healthy one using advanced techniques and give the most successful results.
