Q In this kind of a situation, what effect does the desease have on his right eye?

Ans. If we are talking about keratoconus specifically, due to which your left eye’s (weaker) has poor vision, then in most cases keratoconus does become bilateral. But this is not like an infection where the other eye ‘catches it’. It is more the abnormality existing in one or both eyes. If today there is no abnormality or keratoconus in the right eye, it may stay that way, or it may show early signs and progress to become worse like the left one.

A good eye examination with sensitive equipment like the Pentacam – Topolyzer we use helps diagnose even early stages of this disease to help keep it under control and not allow it to worsen.
