Keratoconus

Down’s syndrome. In rare cases the condition occurs suddenly as a result of a tear in the membrane that closes the front chamber of the eye, thus allowing aqueous humour to accumulate behind the cornea, which then protrudes. Keratoconus seriously reduces vision; treatment is by wearing a contact lens, but only if the eye is not seriously malformed. Surgery is necessary in severe cases, and a corneal transplant may also be called for.
