Keratoconus is a corneal problem. The cornea is the front surface of the eye. Keratoconus is a degenerative disease that affects the layers of the cornea. It creates a distorted cornea and it becomes very difficult to correct someone’s vision with glasses or contacts because they commonly have some combination of distorted vision, blurred vision, double vision, light sensitivity, and dry-eyes.
A major cause of keratoconus is oxidative stress (free radicals that accumulate in the corneal layers) that are unable to be neutralized because the keratoconic cornea is deficient in certain important antioxidants.
So what can you do lifestyle wise for keratoconus? Our recommendations are:
- Take a high potency eye vitamin. Make sure it has N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine, Glutathione, Vitamins C, E, beta-carotene, and trace minerals such as Zinc, Selenium and Copper – this is really important to combat the free radical damage that is driving the progression of keratoconus.
- Reduce your visual stress on digital devices. You can reduce the amount of time you spend on the device and purchase blue-light blocking glasses.
- Protect your eyes from UV radiation from the sun with polarized sunglasses to further limit free radical production.
- Eat a low-carb, low-sugar, and low-gluten diet.
