The Rub

How a habit you don’t even notice may be a sign of keratoconus—a problem you never saw coming. 

Keratoconus, or KC, is a progressive eye disease that may lead to significant vision loss. And the simple, reflexive act of rubbing your eyes may be both a cause of keratoconus, and a symptom. Early diagnosis is important.

What is keratoconus? 

Keratoconus, or KC, is an underdiagnosed, and progressive eye disease in which the cornea (the clear layer on the front of your eye) thins and weakens over time, causing a cone-like bulge to form, oftentimes distorting vision.

If you rub your eyes and are experiencing vision changes, make the connection. See the symptoms!
