    The keratoconus is a diseases that happen to the cornea of the eyes. Our eyes have fibers that hold the cornea in place. But when the fibers become weak, the cornea will be out of shape and usually gradually become more cone shaped. For patient with keratoconus, it is very dangerous to take lasik eye surgery since this surgery is work on your cornea. There, patient with keratoconus are not the candidate of lasik eye surgery. Personally, you'd better wear prescription eyeglasses for vision aids. Also, contact lenses are avoid for your eyes in case any damages to your cornea.
