Have you been told that you have a condition of the eye known as keratoconus? Still confused about what exactly it is? Hopefully this section will help you out.

Keratoconus is a disease of the cornea. The cornea starts to thin, causing it to bulge out. When the cornea bulges out, high amounts of astigmatism are created. This uncorrected astigmatism may cause you to see multiple images out of that eye. Keratoconus is usually first diagnosed in the adolescent years. It can remain fairly stable throughout life, or it can progress to the point where a corneal transplant is needed.

The dry, Alberta winters can have quite an effect on the body. The skin of your hands may be rough, your lips chapped, and even your eyes may be feeling irritated. One of the main eye health complaints of Albertans is having dry eyes. When your eyes are dry they may get red, feel gritty or scratchy (like sand in the eyes), and they may even water excessively. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, or if your eyes just don’t seem quite right, you may be suffering from dry eye.

Amblyopia is the fancy name for a lazy eye. A lazy eye is typically caused by one of three things.

1. An eye turn (strabismus)
2. A large corrective error in the eye that has not been corrected
3. A congenital disease of the eye
