Hi Elizabeth

I don't think there's any evidence-based research on Aspartame-induced Keratoconus ! That said, I avoid the stuff as far as I can since while there's nothing to show it does do you any harm... there's nothing to show it does you any good either...

Best wishes

Chris

diet coke is no better than drain cleaner [very effective as a cleaner when left down anywhere you want cleaned]. It also leeches calcium out of bones so not good for bone density, and lastly it's no use for dieting because it makes you more thirsty and hungry. It's a rubbish drink before we even get to eyes!
