At the Beverly Hills Institute of Ophthalmology, Doctors Khodabakhsh, Pan, and Chong provide patients with expert-level care. We happily provided patients with the following information, giving them everything they need to know about Keratoconus, its causes, diagnosis, symptoms, and the innovative treatment option of iLink Corneal Cross-Linking.
What causes Keratoconus?
The precise cause of Keratoconus remains uncertain, but it is thought to stem from a blend of genetic and environmental elements. Genetics plays a significant role, as Keratoconus often runs in families. Excessive eye rubbing, allergies, and chronic eye irritation may contribute to its progression.
