At that time, there was no organization established which would provide guidance and information about what life was like with keratoconus. There was little information available and no way to contact others with this condition.

This post clearly raises awareness regarding keratoconus. Good thing there are ways to treat this and get rid of it permanently. I hope people can hear more about eye disorders and proper eye care.
