    Question:

    Will keratoconus stop progressing after age 25?


    Answer:

    Keratoconus (cone-shaped cornea) can cause changes to the shape of the cornea even into someone’s 30’s and 40’s. Usually it starts in the teenage years and progresses each year before stabilizing. Keratoconus should be monitored on a regular basis by your ophthalmologist for progression. Collagen cross-linking is a treatment that has been shown to stop the corneal changes associated with keratoconus.
