Patient Comments: Keratoconus - Cause

What do you think caused your keratoconus?

Comment from: 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: January 13

My 'blurred vision', started with my intake of psychotropic medicines when I was 21 years old. No one in my family has keratoconus. I am now clinically 'legally blind'.

HLA-B27 gene caused my keratoconus... no doubt.
