Keratoconic Exams, Newmarket, ON

A keratoconic exam may be a good place to start if you are having trouble diagnosing and correcting your vision in Newmarket, ON.

Keratoconic ExamsWhen the cornea of the eye bulges outward into the shape of a cone, it can cause vision issues beginning as young as age ten. This eye disease is called keratoconus, and if you are familiar with the disease or are having trouble diagnosing and correcting your vision problems, a keratoconic eye exam may be a good place to start. The cause of this eye disease is not known, but it can be troublesome when typical vision correction options do not seem to help you enjoy clear vision.

There are several factors that may indicate you should consider keratoconic exams, including:

  • Blurred vision
  • Nearsightedness becoming worse
  • Seeing halos, glare or having night vision trouble

Additionally, keratoconic exams are an important step if you are considering LASIK eye surgery because the surgery cannot be performed if you suffer with the condition, even in a mild format.

Typically, keratoconus will present itself in adolescence, and if you are an adult who has the disease, your children should also be checked during their annual eye exam. You may also request keratoconic exams even if you don’t have a genetic predisposition to the condition but would like the security of knowing it is not an issue for you.
