Eye rubbing may be one of the most common causes of keratoconus.
Ophthalmology consult is recommended for children who rub their eyes frequently and vigorously.
Children may have allergies or need glasses.
Testing can identify astigmatism and early signs of keratoconus.
Treatment can prevent progressive warping of the cornea which may require rigid contact lenses or surgery.
