Keratoconus is a degenerative non-inflammatory disorder of the cornea (the front window of the eye) and generally affects both eyes. The underlying problem is weakness of the supporting collagen fibres in the cornea. This makes the cornea structurally and bio-mechanically "weak". As a result, the cornea assumes a more conical shape with resultant irregular astigmatism.
