Eye Rubbing

Eye Rubbing is believed to have a significant affect on the development of Keratoconus. This YouTube clip is interesting in that it suggests that adults need to avoid eye rubbing just as much as children.

  1. Interestingly, in the more than 30 years since my keratoconus was first diagnosed, it’s only in the last 5 years that I’ve heard anything about eye-rubbing being in any way related to keratoconus/progression. Given that at 1 in 2,000 people, keratonconus is much less rare than I’d thought earlier in my life, shouldn’t there be more promotion of eye-rubbing being a bad thing?
