Keratoconus

Hi

My optomotrist diagnosed me with Keratoconus today and recommend hard contact lenses. However, there are no physical evidence of Keratoconus in my eyes if I compare it to the photos I''ve seen on google/wikipedia, i.e. the cornea doesn''t appear cone shaped from the side. Is that possible?

Regards,

Pieter

Hallo Pieter
I don't think that it is always visible to the naked eye, especially if it is not severe keratoconus. You can go for a second opinion preferably to an opthalmologist if you want confirmation of the diagnosis.
